A breezy walk at the Civic District for Light to Night Festival 2021.
Last Evening, while going about the Civic District monuments, I noticed the following:
- There’s quite a number of visitors, about the same as last year. Everyone was also dutifully masked and socially distanced.
- Far fewer outdoor art installations surprisingly didn’t compromise the ambience of the event. Not that much anyway.
- It’s still quite a rush if you wish to see everything, because of indoor events. Some of these aren’t specifically for Light to Night but for Singapore Art Week 2021, though.
Yeah, I guess this is a good slice of what the so-called New Norm is. Which isn’t altogether that bad once you get used to it. I suppose for all Singaporeans, it’s also already second-nature to scan-in-scan-out at indoor facilities.
As for the artwork, it’s great that it’s not all about the pandemic. Could be a case of me being that artistically blind but other than the art skin projection at Victoria Theatre, I wasn’t reminded of COVID-19 anywhere else.
Light to Night Festival 2021 Art Skin Projections
Let me start with these.
This year’s projections are all located with minutes of each other. Easy to enjoy within an hour, in other words.
Everything considered, I’ll say I like the one at the Arts House most too. It’s a little cyberpunk-ish at parts, a little sci-fi too. Watching it briefly gave me the sensation of being in a video game.
Indoor Programmes and Other Highlights
Half of these aren’t part of Light to Night 2021. But with them all being at the festive venues, why would that matter?
Light to Night 2021 is ongoing till February, while the art skin projects end on Jan 31, 2021. Check the official page for details. There are various online activities and events to enjoy too.
