From now till Mar. 21, 2021, Downtown East is housing four multi-sensory installations scattered around its premises.

Called "LITE ON!", the installations are part of Singapore Art Week happening from Jan. 22 to Jan. 30, 2021.

Access to these works by local creatives is free.

1. Shades of Self

Walk through and interact with the geometrical structure inspired by architecture.

The arched gateways represents strength, support, lightness, and openness within density. Very deep.

At night, it "unfolds from its chromatic skin during the day into a brightly-lit tunnel", which perhaps means it changes colours.

2. Somewhere Out There

Reminiscent of pyramids and mountain tops, the installation aims to transport its audience to a "dreamy, fictional place that exists beyond [their] reality", by their sheer proximity with an unfamiliar structure.

Those, who wish to, can enter the structure, which integrates the artist’s original music.

4. Bubble Play

The installation attempts to reframe everyday objects that Singaporeans have grown accustomed to.

It's centred on the material of bubble wrap, which visitors are invited to pop.

Each "level" also appears to offer a different sort of interaction.
