‘Living Spirits’, a group of Thai interactive art creators, is preparing to debut a light installation, “Chandelier of Spirits” at “i Light Marina Bay 2018” taking place from March 9 to April 1 around the Marina Bay Waterfront, Singapore.

 “Chandelier of Spirits” will be at Breeze Shelters area.

Inspired by the morning beverage habits of office workers and to symbolise Singapore’s workforce, cold brew coffee bottles were collected to create this installation, which lights up the city after sunset, the same way as they light up our energy during the daytime. “Chandelier of Spirits” not only shines brighter when there are more people around it, but it also sings and creates a harmonious chimes sound when the breeze blows.

“Chandelier of Spirits” by Living Spirits from Thailand is among 22 enthralling light art installations by international artists from 14 countries chosen to showcase their work at the festival. 

Organised by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) of Singapore, the sixth edition of the sustainable light art festival will feature installations created by artists from around the world. Designed with energy-saving lighting, recycled or environmentally-friendly materials, the light art installations reinforce Marina Bay’s position as a sustainable precinct, and serve as reminders to encourage festival goers and the public to adopt eco-aware habits in their everyday lives.

“i Light Marina Bay 2018” runs daily from 7.30pm to 11pm with extended hours to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, around the Marina Bay waterfront.

Admission is free.
