From Dec. 25, several structures around the marina area will see a projection show as part of the Marina Bay Singapore Countdown 2021.
The facades of The Fullerton Hotel and Merlion at Marina Bay will light up with artworks on Dec. 25, while another projection show will begin on the facade of the ArtScience Museum on Dec. 26.
Share the Moment
Called Share the Moment, the entire programme will feature 17 artworks by 24 tertiary students.
The inspiration behind their artworks were the efforts by organisations and individuals who helped others in need during the Covid-19 pandemic.
These include initiatives by Beng Who Cooks and more.
The two young hawkers prepared and gave out over 50 free meals to Singaporeans each day during the Circuit Breaker period.
NAFA student Livia Fin depicted the two individuals in their aprons, distributing meals to people.
One of the artworks to be featured on the Merlion will be inspired by stories of individuals sewing handmade masks for the vulnerable community.
Doreen Goh and Nurul Alisyah, who are from SIT-GSA, used the motif of sewing to portray how a thread binds communities together.
The mane of the Merlion in the artwork was designed to stimulate mask fabric, while its body is patterned with dotted lines to resemble stitches made in sewn fabric.

The ArtScience Museum will be "lit with hopes and aspirations for Singapore."
