i Light Marina Bay 2014 - The Pool 4

i Light Marina Bay, Asia’s only sustainable light art festival, is back this year with over 20 art installations around the waterfront.

Like previous i Light festivals, the art on display uses recyclable (or recycled) materials and energy-efficient lighting (LEDs).

This year’s installations are quite engaging and intriguing, so I won’t be describing the art in detail. In fact this entry does not have photos of every single piece. Instead, I invite you to visit the installations and interactive the art yourself. Take a look at the map here. You might want to start from one end (From Downtown MRT Station OR Esplanade Theatres) to avoid backtracking.

Other than the art, there are a couple of special pop-up stores along the waterfront during the festival. Check out “PasarBella and Friends Go To Town” (Outdoor Event Plaza, Marina Bay Sands) and The Travelling C.O.W (The Promontory @ Marina Bay; on weekends only). Savour 2014 is also happening at the Promontory this weekend.

i Light Marina Bay 2014 - The Wishing! Tree

The Wishing! Tree by The Living! Project is one of the most popular installations, because visitors get to participate in the art. Located right outside The Shoppes at Marina Bay, the “leaves” of this tree are wishes thrown by visitors. Each “wish” is actually a pair of LED lights, tied together with a strip of (not sure paper or not) “writing material”.

i Light Marina Bay 2014 - The Wishing! Tree Queue

Located near a tree is a booth distributing lights to visitors. They are free, so just join the queue to collect your own. Markers are provided at nearby tables for you to write your wish. There is a limited quantity of lights given out each night, so do get here early (before 9PM to be safe).

Incandescent lightbulbs form the “cloud”, but energy-efficient bulbs give the light. Pull chains, form the rain.
