To support the commemoration of the Singapore Bicentennial, the Gardens by the Bay was transformed for the immersive art exhibition #futuretogether. The digital art installations are jointly presented by Gardens by the Bay and GIC, with art by art collective teamLab. It had its soft opening last 15 December held for Singaporean citizens but is set to officially open to the public on 16 January next year.
#futuretogether consists of both indoor and outdoor exhibitions. Singapore residents are free to enter to see the indoor exhibitions from 16 January 2020 onwards. All outdoor exhibitions are free and open to the public. The exhibits represent the themes Aspirations, Possibilities, and Connectivity. The themes hope to encompass how Singaporeans are looking forward to the future as the bicentennial year comes to a close.
#futuretogether will open to the public on 16 January 2020
During its soft opening on 15 October, we witnessed two of the outdoor exhibitions come to life. These were the Autonomous Resonating Life on the Water and Resonating Trees — Dragonfly Lake and Flowers and People — Giant Lattice Mass, a Whole Year per Hour.
Autonomous Resonating Life on the Water and Resonating Trees — Dragonfly Lake is one of the seven indoor and outdoor exhibits. It represents the theme 'Connectivity'. By touching the ovoids on the boardwalk, you will trigger magical shifts in colour and sound across the hundreds of other ovoids floating on Dragonfly Lake.
Flowers and People — Giant Lattice Mass, a Whole Year per Hour
In Flowers and People — Giant Lattice Mass, a Whole Year per Hour, flowers will bloom scattered across Gardens by the Bay’s iconic lattice structure according to the movement of people. It symbolises 'Aspirations' — the lattice structure was once representative of SG50. Now, it’s part of the bicentennial capstone event that envisions the future of Singapore.
To see the indoor exhibits, Singapore residents can reserve their tickets through the Gardens' website.
