To commemorate 200 years since the founding of modern Singapore by Stamford Raffles back in 1819, i Light Singapore – Bicentennial Edition features 33 sustainable light art installations spanning across Marina Bay, the Civic District, Singapore River and Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park. This year edition reflects on Singapore’s history and growth over the last 700 years. With that, you can expect it to be bigger and better!
Lighthouse of Time
The façade of ArtScience Museum is transformed into a lighthouse for a new age; a gigantic light sculpture of dancing lights.
ArtScience Museum Façade
The Time Vortex
Travel through time as The Helix bridge comes alive with a beautiful tunnel of moving lights whizzing through space.
This is one of the ‘Instagram worthy’ light installation you should not missed!
The Helix Bridge
The Rainbow Connection
A display of solar light modules that is made from upcycled cookie containers, suspended to form a kaleidoscopic projection on ground.
Marina Bay Sands trellises
Inspired by the selfie culture, the Facey Thing creates hyperreal simulated images of visitors through the art of play.
Marina Bay waterfront promenade
Singapore’s future skyline by using only clothes pegs.
Marina Bay lower boardwalk
Inspired by the original sampan panjang of the Orang Laut and by its later racing variations, Sails Aloft is a holographic art installation that creates a snapshot of a 19th century sailboat race in the region.
Marina Bay waterfront promenade
Shades of Temporality
This is the only time you can ‘paint’ on the public wall! Using electronic paint rollers and custom software, visitors are able to virtually “paint” videos, in real time, onto walls, creating endless combinations of moving murals in the process.
Marina Bay Link Mall entrance
As the name suggest, the sea of twists and turns is an abstract reflection of this very multicultural world we live in.
The Promontory @ Marina Bay
City Gazing Singapore
Suspended over The Lawn @ Marina Bay, this work showcases the dynamic city of Singapore as if flying over it by night when being lit up.
The Lawn @ Marina Bay
This installation brightens according to the motions and touch of passers-by.
This artwork rotates to stimulate the movement of a clock.
The Cat in the Garden
This light projection transforms the Merlion to showcase scenes of nature and snippets of Singapore’s daily life.
For the first time, Anderson Bridge transforms into a musical instrument, playing with slow and fast tempos, evolution and even silence.

Hundreds of vertical flags on Jubilee Bridge are animated by kaleidoscopic lighting as Oriflammes flaps with the gentle breeze.
Cenotaph for a Stone
A reinterpretation of the Singapore Stone as what it was, what it is and what it could have been, in a time-warped explosion.
Waterboat House Garden
Where do Stories End
Reflections on Singapore’s history.
Bridges of Time
Bridges of Time tells a poetic story of a universal traveller who sails through time and space to reach a mythical island in the East. Using light, sound, projection and water, this immersive multimedia show creates a wondrous and breathtaking ancient landscape that glows magically on the historic Singapore River, against the contemporary city skyline. In fact, this is on of my favourite installation for this year edition.
