Marina Bay, the Civic District, and the Singapore River celebrate sustainability with i Light Singapore 2019.
I’ll begin this post with something
I got confused. Too many quirky light art
installations and events were popping up downtown.
I mean, I knew i Light Singapore 2019 was starting this week, running concurrently with Light to Night Bicentennial Edition. However, the two light-ups being practically crawling distance from one another resulted in me mixing up the respective displays.
In fact, I didn’t realise this till I was mopping my floor yesterday. (A true epiphany, that one) That’s why I mistakenly used Anderson Bridge as the feature pic for my second write-up on Light to Night 2019. I only just changed the pic.
Anyway, it’s all clear to me now … I think. Made my way through most i Light Singapore 2019 installation venues this evening too, from those at the Singapore River to those beside the ArtScience Museum.
Compared to last year, I find this year’s displays more picturesque overall. They also seem to be grander; this, perhaps due to the festival being part of the SG Bicentennial Celebrations.
Like the partnering festival, many installations also clearly honour Singapore’s unique cultural identity.
