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, beginning with those at the Singapore River and ending at 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.
