I Light Marina Bay 2014 – A Photolog

DSC_5429 s
A quick photo log of a past event… I am always slow. Anyway, I Light Marina Bay is a light festival which takes place once every 2 years. If I’m not wrong, this is the 3rd time it is being hosted at the Marina Bay Waterfront, stretching from The Float @ Marina Bay just next to Marina Square, all the way through MBS to the other side where One Marina Boulevard is. It was a last minute decision to visit the event and I went without knowing what to expect really. No tripods, no prime lenses… just have to make the best out of it. So here is a quick photo log of what I’d taken…Enjoy 🙂

The skies are still bright and the installations are not lighted up yet when we’d reached. So a quick shot of the CBD @ sunset…

The first installation we’d visited, a tree with light bulbs which could be manually switched on and off by tugging one of the hanging ropes, for a more interactive approach.

Already a group of photographers, with big arse gear snapping away…I am so inadequately equipped…

As the skies darken, more exhibits began to become more apparent. A net-like installation on The Float @ Marina Bay that mimics the Northern Lights…

The disks change colour periodically and responds to someone stepping on them. great for kids, though the lights are a bit glaring admittedly…

Like harlequin candy… my favorite combination…

The aim of this festival is to create public awareness on the importance of sustainable lighting and thus sustainable living. I’m not entirely sure if this message is being thoroughly and clearly transpired to the audience. Many seems to be just here to enjoy a good light show. Entertaining and bedazzling many of these exhibits were, the messages which they carry could really be more properly brought across. Looking forward to the next installment of i Light Marina Bay in 2016. Hopefully it would be a better show and hopefully I would be better equipped then.
