I hope your week is coming along fine! ^^
I do hope you’ve been enjoying my posts so far, there’s so many posts I have and am eager to share with you all,
so let’s get started! 😀
About 2 weeks ago, I asked my sister to join me on the last night of i Lights, a lights festival held in the evenings along Marina Bay.
Before the skies turned grey and dark, I had some “me” time while waiting for my sister to join me….
Took a walk around Pasarbella but the heat was too much for me to take, so I sought refuge indoors instead!
Yummi-licious Mee Rebus from Toastbox. It’s real good guys, go for it. 🙂
A trip to Bath & Body works had me convinced that I must aspire to always smell good in the bath… I’ve heard some raved reviews online/insta and I wondered what’s all the fuss about. But guys, you need to go in to
see smell it to believe it. This set smells amazingly soothing and calming. Someone get me this please. <3 I think it’s especially appropriate for most Singaporeans who work in high stress environments, heh. 😛
So basically, here’s what I googled, to find out more information about i Lights and how to navigate the place:
The event is flanked on the left and right of MBS, on the left all the way towards Raffles Place MRT and on the right all the way towards Esplanade MRT. My sister and I started off at MBS, went down to Raffled Place first, then all the way back down to Esplanade.
The scenic city view just before the skies got dark.
We begin with lights installation A1.
A1. BEAT by Arup (Singapore.
A2. THE WISHING TREE by The Living! Project (Singapore)
Basically you can queue for a lighted strip, presumably make a wish and the toss your strip on the tree.
This ain’t an installation but a poster at the SelfiePod store at the bazaar. Too cute! We couldn’t resist a few selfies. Heh.
A4. HAPPY CROCO by Bibi (France)
Nope I didn’t make a mistake and skipped A3, it’s because it was in the waters and we just missed it all together.
You can go watch a clip of it on Youtube though, I think my friend posted it on Youtube, it’s done by students from SUTD.
So for A4 Happy Croco, it is cute, it’s the kind of thing I imagine kids creating and enjoying.
A5. BEDAZZLED by Meinhardt Light Studio Pte. Ltd. (Singapore)
Where kids and adults alight can go under a half cove area and watch a light performance.
A8. #WEHEARTLIGHT by Light Collective (United Kingdom)
It’s one of my favourite, just cause it’s such a pretty light display. Hearts will always attract the girls right? 😛
A9. JOUJOU-OURS by Uno Lai (Taiwan)
These bear heads are all sorts of cute. Puts a smile on your face when you see them, fo’ sure!
A10. Floating Hearts by Travesias De Luz (Spain)
It’s also about hearts except this one you can turn off and on the light hearts with a switch in the middle of each heart, very cool.
A11. **INSERT CAPTION PLEASE by Ryf Zaini (Singapore).
Guess I’ll have to compile a video and post this picture below on Youtube! ;P
A12. THE GUARDIAN ANGELS by Maro Avrabou & Dimitri Xenakis (Greece & France)
Did we spot a ghosts? 😛
A14. THE POOL by Jen Lewin Studio (USA)
I really like this one too, with all the rainbow light changes. Very pretty and interactive.
Check out SG Uncle’s version of #PimpMyRide!
B14. CELEBRATION OF LIFE by Justin Lee with Dorier Asia Pte. Ltd.
It’s an animated video on the “shells’ of the building exterior. Interesting.
B11. DIGITAL WATTLE by Out of the Dark (New Zealand)
Another one that I really like. It just reminds me of autumn trees and water colour paintings, both which I really like, but in the digital lighted form. I would love something like that in my future or a futuristic home. Not to say that I want my future home to be a futuristic home, but that it would be nice to have a light element like that, and that would make my home a little futuristic looking, ha!
B10. 1.26 SINGAPORE by Janet Echelman (USA)
I am really not sure what this coloured net means. But it allows the audience to rest under it on the grass and it’s just beautiful.
B9 CLOUD by Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett.
Like what my sister said, you’d probably never seen so many people looking so keen, under what seems like a rain cloud. Heh.
Basically viewers can turn off and on the lightbulbs through the various strings attached. Cute right?A video of the cloud, my sis and the view. Hehe.
A video of the short lightshow we caught and the ending fireworks from MBS! 😀
B5. THE WHEELS OF INDUSTRY by Twist Design (United Kingdom)
Basically anyone can get on the bike and cycle and light up the car. Quite interesting and probably wasn’t easy to get the mechanism working.
Honestly having been involved in a small-scale exhibition before, I know it’s tough work putting one together. These guys and the organizers have really done an INCREDIBLE & SMASHING job putting everything together and letting the public enjoying and having so much fun. My hat’s off to i Lights team!
B6 GIANT DANDELIONS by Olivia d’Aboville (Phillippines/France)
This is a poetic installation. Also very pretty and great lightning for selfies. HEHE.
Ending off with an InstaVid I post on my Instagram~
It was one of those nights that was very well spent and makes me glad that we’re able to enjoy a festival like that. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this post which has so many videos! 😀
There will be another post with many videos, on Fashion Steps Out, when I get to it! 😛
Thank you for reading <3
