Get your first look at the new Night Lights of Singapore Night Festival 2018!
Night Lights 2018
Singapore Night Festival is back again with a nine nights of light installations (17–25 August) and three consecutive nights of performances (23–25 Aug) to close off the event on a high.
With this year’s theme, Bring On The Night, the festival features art installations that are more participatory than past editions, allowing visitors to feel more immersed and engaged in the art.
The festival is spread across 5 zones in the Bras Basah.Bugis Precinct and the Night Lights will be open from 7:30PM — 12:00AM. Do take note that bag checks will be conducted at Zones 3 and 4 (Cathay Green and SMU Campus Green) this year, so you are advised to only bring small bags, or no bags if you wish to visit the Ember Rain installation and Festival Village area.
Aquatic Dream (by Lekker Design and Auditoire)
Start your journey into the light from the National Museum of Singapore and discover Aquatic Dream, a walkthrough installation about the mysterious oceans.
Ember Rain (by Starlight Alchemy)
Pedal on a bicycle to make fiery sparks dance and fly at Ember Rain in Cathay Green.
The Search (by The Search Party, SUTD)
Go on The Search – an ephemeral journey around Singapore as you float with paper planes.
A tip from the creators: The light and music sequence takes place in the first and last scenes, then the middle space. Once the lights take pause, you should already move on, because there is likely a huge queue of people waiting behind you!
The Search is located at the National Design Centre’s Design Gallery 1, where the popular Phosphene was installed last year. Both works were designed by students from Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Expect long wait times as the capacity for this installation is very small.
Odyssey (by Arnaud Pottier & Thimothée Mironneau)
Journey through time and space at Odyssey, this year’s epic projection mapping installation at the Singapore Art Museum.
Graffiti Alive (by Arup)
Walk down the Alley of Armenian Street and witness Graffiti Alive.
Due to road works, Armenian Street is closed for pedestrians if you’re strolling from Stamford Road and Fort Canning Link, so you’ll need to walk along a tiny corridor below the shophouses or go through SMU School of Law.
Pulse (by Galina Mihaleva, Hedren Sum, Pataranutaporn, Kathrin Albers, Audrey Ng)
Explore a floating digital ‘playground’ of Pulse at the garden behind Armenian Church.
Hyperbands (by kopI/O)
Marvel at a dynamic ribbon of light at Hyperbands, as you walk past the LTA Walkway next to SMRT HQ.
Before The Word (by Pierre Ranzini and Cristina Di Pasqual)
Before The Word lets you make its giant letters come alive when you hover your hand over a mysterious control panel. See this playful installation at CHIJMES.
Orbit (by LiteWerkz x 3M)
Walk through a glittering galaxy of Orbit at Dhoby Ghaut Green, where you can touch, spin and even take flash photos of these spheres for special photo effects.
The Leap of Faith (by Teng Kai Wei)
Jump away from your problems at The Leap of Faith outside The Cathay, in this beautifully lit world of hexagons.
World of WearableArt
Be mesmerised by a World of WearableArt at the Atrium of the National Design Centre. Hundreds of fashion designers take part in this international design competition every year, and the eight finalist garments featured in this space were curated from the past three decades.
