First held in 2010, i Light Singapore showcases light art installations created by Singaporean and international artists. These artworks are designed with energy-saving lightings and/or environmentally-friendly materials to encourage festival goers and the general public to adopt sustainable habits in their everyday lives. The Festival also features a diverse range of fringe activities for visitors to enjoy, bringing vibrancy to public spaces in our city centre.
Each edition of the i Light Singapore starting this year will be anchored on colour from the visible light spectrum. The chosen colour this year is violet, alongside the theme Spark of Light. Violet is known to have the most powerful electromagnetic energy in the visible spectrum – signifying the awakening of the senses, akin to the spark of an idea in one’s mind.
This year’s show by DBS will be held from June 3 to 26, 2022, from 7:30pm to 11pm daily. Admission is free, while charges apply for certain programmes.
Festival-goers can expect immersive and interactive artworks by local and international artists with a focus on environmental sustainability. The artworks aim to encourage conversations about our lifestyles and consumption behaviour to build a more sustainable future.
This year’s event, which coincides with the music and entertainment event Gastrobeats, is sure to leave attendees overwhelmed.
