i Light Singapore 2019 – Top 5 Installations You Must Not Miss!

Trip the (i) Light fantastic!

This special Bicentennial Edition of the ninth i Light Singapore promised a fantastic show with more than 20 programmes and 33 light art installations, and boy did they deliver! The sumptuous visual buffet spans Marina Bay, the Civic District, Singapore River and Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park, with the aim of connecting attendees from different generations through shared experiences, delectable food, delightful music and immersive play, while promoting awareness about sustainability and the evolution of our city through time.

Having already visited the event, i Light Singapore was certainly a de-light-ful experience, but if you haven’t got the luxury of time to check out everything on show, here are the top 5 sights that you shouldn’t miss.


Squiggle is an installation by Kiwi artist Angus Muir, a twisting mass of 200 metres of digital neon tubing on a custom built steel framework. The sea of twists and turns fills The Promontory @ Marina Bay and allows visitors to interact with the installation by using little joysticks to change the colours, speed and direction – an abstract reflection of the multicultural world we live in.


Alive during night and day, Oriflammes is a dynamic display of lights, colours and movement. Crossing the Jubilee Bridge never felt so glorious!

Time Traveller

Inspired by bamboo fish traps, an artifact of a recent past that already seems too distant to be bridged between generations, Time Traveller is a visitor from the past to our present.

Flower Clock

Inspired by the relationship between blooming flowers and time, this artwork rotates to simulate the movement of a clock. It celebrates Singapore as a Garden City while the rotating flowers represent how the intangible process of time has a tangible effect on nature.

The Cat In The Garden

The Cat in the Garden, by French video mapping production mavericks Loom Prod, combines the early days of a natural world, with a multicultural modern world we live in today that is festive and full of life, with snippets of local life here. Viewers will travel through seven colours of the light spectrum; a poetic bridge to nature reminiscent of a rainbow.

i Light Singapore takes place until 24 February 2019, from 7.30pm to 11pm daily with extended hours to 12am on Fridays and Saturdays. Admission is free.
