Spread the love

This November, visitors to ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands can look forward to embark on a sensorial journey through Future World: Where Art Meets Science and Digital Light Canvas by teamLab. ArtScience Museum’s permanent exhibition has reopened after following extensive redevelopment works to reveal artworks inviting visitors of all backgrounds to experience these dynamic spaces in a new light.

Future World has welcomed close to 3 million visitors through its doors since its opening in 2016. Continually evolving as science, technology, and art progress, the exhibition will now present three interactive installations in a new gallery titled Exploring New Frontiers, that encourages visitors to see the skies above as a place of inspiration and discovery. At the same time, in its very first revamp, Digital Light Canvas by teamLab will unveil a new artwork that explores nature and biodiversity, focusing on endangered species and the roles that living things play within an ecosystem. Within this space, visitors can also turn their creations into unique souvenirs to bring home.

Here’s what you can expect when you visit the newly revamped Future World and Digital Light Canvas as follows:

Future World: Where Art Meets Science
Exploring New Frontiers

Future World has undergone a major transformation to house a new gallery titled Exploring New Frontiers in place of Sanctuary and Park. Serving as a second chapter to the exhibition, the new gallery invites visitors to take flight and explore the world above.

The sky becomes the focus In Exploring New Frontiers where visitors are invited to begin their journey by observing the phenomena of self-organisation – the natural emergence of order out of chaos – before taking to the skies alongside birds and aircraft to experience the world as other living creatures of the air perceive it. In the final section of the exhibition, teamLab will transport visitors into astronomical space with Crystal Universe, a dazzling installation which remains a crowd favourite. In each of the artworks at Exploring New Frontiers, the beauty of nature creates an environment for one’s imaginations to soar.

i. Autonomous Abstraction, Continuous Phenomena from the Universe to the Self

Autonomous Abstraction, Continuous Phenomena from the Universe to the Self is a new abstract installation that explores this phenomenon. In the artwork, points of light flicker and change in colour. As visitors interact with the artwork in a free and disordered manner, causing the points of light to disperse, the points that are closer to each other will gradually synchronise in hue and rhythm, giving rise to spontaneous order.

ii. Aerial Climbing Through a Flock of Colored Birds

Visitors are invited to experience the world with one’s entire body as they climb and navigate an aerial structure consisting of colourful horizontal bars suspended in mid-air. Each person’s movement influences the artwork as well as others in the space, creating patterns of light, colour, and sound. Flocks of birds also soar freely around the installation, changing in colour whenever they fly close to people.

ii. Sketch Flight

This artwork explores the idea of flight by allowing visitors to see the world from the perspective of airplanes and living creatures in the sky. Visitors are invited to draw and colour airplanes, hawks and butterflies on papers provided, before seeing their creations become part of a virtual world projected against a giant screen. In an added interactive feature, visitors are also able to pilot their creations with a tablet.

Digital Light Canvas by teamLab

Digital Light Canvas by teamLab will introduce a new artwork called Graffiti Nature – Red List, Digital Light Canvas that replaces Nature’s Rhythm. This large-scale installation transforms the space into a digital menagerie of animals that roam freely alongside blooming flowers as they are brought to life from drawings made by visitors. Next to it, visitors’ creations can also be turned into special mementos at the brand-new Sketch Factory.

i. Graffiti Nature – Red List, Digital Light Canvas

Visitors can let their imaginations run wild within Graffiti Nature – a new artwork featuring a digital ecosystem made of plants and living creatures drawn by visitors. Their drawings will come to life on a dynamic LED floor through innovative digital technology, captivating audiences of all ages as they interact with the animated flora and fauna moving freely around their feet.

ii. Sketch Factory

In a lovely new addition to Digital Light Canvas by teamLab, drawings created in Graffiti Nature can be made into uniquely personal memorabilia for visitors to take home with them at Sketch Factory. These souvenirs include a tin badge, t-shirt, and tote bag.
