i Light Singapore Festival Illuminates City of Lion

The leading sustainable light art festival in Southeast Asia, i Light Singapore, is well underway in the City of Lion. It started on January, 28 and will last till February, 24. 

This year, the festival which was launched back in 2010 celebrates its tenth edition. It is a light extravaganza, a journey of space and time with over 30 illuminated and free for public installations all united by the same thing – Bridges of Time.

Traditionally the festival is held in Marina Bay, but this year there are festive installations throughout the city including Civic District; the Singapore River where an immersive, multimedia float show will take place; and Raffles Terrace in Fort Canning Park. 

The theme of the festival invites visitors to explore the history of Singapore and the relations of the city-state with the world. 36 countries of the globe submitted over two hundred proposals for the festival, one of the most impressive being a striking map of Singapore over The Lawn@Marina Bay by Dutch artists.

The festival also serves as a paltform for young talents. This year, i Light Student Award will be inaugurated to praise the best sustainable light art installations from students across the globe.
