S’pore Night Festival returns Aug. 23-31, 2019, light installations & performances at Bras Basah/Bugis

Highlights: light projections and installations

Here’s a first look at some of the 17 light projections and installations that will be featured in this year’s rendition:

1) Keep Dreaming at National Museum of Singapore

This light up of the National Museum of Singapore is a family-friendly showcase capturing the exploration of a whimsical wonderland.

2) Project:Dome – OCISLY at SMU Campus Green

Festival-goers can create their own emojis to appear on screen at this crowd-sourced digital projection.

3) Skylight at SMU Campus Green

This flexible light-emitting installation by A*STAR in collaboration with Nanyang Academy of Fine Art (NAFA) shows the innovative coupling of Art and Science.

4) Sk(r)etch at Queen Street

Sk(r)etch invites festival-goers to scratch paint off the installation to reveal a mosaic of bright colours and patterns.

If you turn on your camera’s flash, you will be able to see this mosaic artwork “light up”:

5) Work-in-progress at National Design Centre

This scaffold structure, populated with animated light formations, brings across endless possibilities of imagination that are open to the viewer’s interpretation.

6) Waves of Time at CHIJMES

This facade projection re-imagines the journey of a young Prince chasing his dream to and around our island.

7) Disco Walkway along Stamford Road

Inspired by the unheard tunes of the city, Disco Walkway adds vibrancy to the Stamford Walkway with glowing neon-coloured cubes and music.

8) Symbiote at Stamford Walkway

Wander in and out of this airy and undulating space, which is a response to Singapore’s dynamic multi-cultural and multi-religious societal fabric.

9) Tropicana at Stamford Court Clock

See this regular clock tower come to life with bright and bubbly colours and a tropicana theme.

10) S.C.U.L.P.T at Armenian Church

Inspired from the fusion of cultures in Peranakan identity, this dome is transformed into a digital canvas of luminous beadwork.

11) The Legend of Ramayana at National Museum of Singapore
