i Light Singapore is returning to illuminate Marina Bay from 1 to 25 June 2023. Organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and presented by DBS, Asia’s leading sustainable light festival will transform the Bay into a visual playground replete with new immersive light art installations and programmes that promise to delight the senses. The Festival will also expand to two new locations – South Beach and Millenia Walk – to offer festival goers fresh experiences and bring the artworks closer to more people.
i Light Singapore 2023 is curated to the theme of A New Wave and anchored on the colour blue – a wavelength on the visible light spectrum that is omnipresent in nature’s blue spaces such as oceans and rivers, and often associated with emotions such as calmness and serenity. Visitors are invited to reflect on our natural environment by immersing themselves in creative light art installations and interactive programmes, and be inspired to contribute to a more sustainable future.
Behind this year’s line-up of artworks is a diverse group of artists – from talented local creatives, acclaimed international names to budding student designers – who had drawn inspiration from the colour blue and leveraged innovative technology to develop enthralling pieces that evoke immersive experiences.
Lightwave: Turning the Tide, presented by Alibaba Cloud, is a new immersive light experience at The Promontory. Here, visitors will be invited to embark on a journey to a future where rising sea levels have submerged humans in an underwater world. Through compelling and thought-provoking light displays across three chapters, visitors can contemplate the repercussions of human actions on the environment, and reflect on how they can make a change to turn the tide.
When: 1 - 25 Jun 2023, 7.30pm - 11pm
