Singapore’s largest digital art exhibition, Future World: Where Art Meets Science is launching a brand new installation to kick off the June holidays. It will transform the space into a digital menagerie of animals that roam freely across the galleries, as they are brought to life from drawings made by visitors. Making its world premiere at ArtScience Museum, the new installation is the latest work by art collective, teamLab. Titled Graffiti Nature, the work features an entire ecosystem of animals that move freely between the Town and Park sections of Future World.
It is the highlight of a season of animal-themed projects hosted by ArtScience Museum for the school holidays this June. Young visitors will also be invited to go on a treasure hunt through the museum, searching for animals, and enjoy free animal-themed screenings, as part of the museum’s film programme, ArtScience on Screen.
The season has been programmed to celebrate the arrival of Graffiti Nature to Future World. Within this landmark new attraction, visitors will be able to let their imagination run wild as they draw their own crocodiles, butterflies, and turtles. Their creations will then come to life within Future World through the intervention of innovative digital technology. Audiences of all ages will be enthralled as they interact with animated animals and watch the colourful creatures move freely around their feet.
“Graffiti Nature is an artwork that is completely created by the visitors. The ecosystem of flora and fauna expands when visitors draw and colour in more animals and flowers, and butterflies grow and increase where the flowers are. If the animals sense you, they run away. Stand still and flowers will blossom around you. Walk around and the flowers will scatter. Search for your animals, and whilst making the flowers bloom, explore the Future World that everyone has created,” said Mr Toshiyuki Inoko, founder of teamLab.
Venue: ArtScience Museum at Martina Bay Sands
