Be entertained by the magical fishes as they come alive at the SOTA Facade. “The Fish Tree” installation was made by BIBI using disused common plastic objects. Head on down and have a look. Can you identify the plastic objects in this installation?
Parking Mad (Le Parking en folie) returns for another run, this time at the front lawn of SAM. Catch the gorgeous light display before the Night Festival ends on 3 Sept.
Lyrical Perspective at SAM blurs reality, as this visual and audio interactive installation responding to the sound of a human voice. The mapping projection will “shake” SAM, and the building seems to take a life on its own. Head on down and catch the unique installation borrowing the architecture to make this possible.
The Cloud (Le Nuage) storms and captures one’s attention as it takes a life of its own, injecting a colorful display, building from a small cloud to a thundercloud. Not to mention that the changes are fluid, so one would have to pay attention to see the transformation process.
Apart from these light installations, visitors can also look forward to an Art Party at SAM’s Glass Hall on Friday, 2 Sept, featuring music and art from Singapore and Le Pompon, Paris. DJs from various clubs will be spinning as well. Let one’s hair down after a long week of work.
In a twist of contemporary art installation, artist Mojoko and Computer Programmer Shang Liang, collaborates to create a “Reactive Wall”, which displays over 200 images of local and graphic icons.
