Light Collective were chosen to participate in the iLight Marina Bay Festival 2012. Our tiny low tech piece looked like it was in the wrong place compared to the large scale projections onto buildings but we were glad there was space in the festival for our humble offering nevertheless.
Consisting of a series of metal mirrors with stencils attached (artwork by LC and the students of SOTA), passersby could use an LED torch to create reflected light graffiti in an underground car park. The chance to create graffiti in a country where it’s banned and the opportunity to participate and play with light was a hit with everyone from tiny kids to the grown ups. We spent several evenings watching people work out how to do it, play with the reflections and get creative in ways we hadn’t considered. The theme of the festival was East meets West and the students of SOTA produced a series of artwork which depicted the West as all burgers, money and tanks…
The installation was supported by the Almeco Group who provided the reflector material for the mirrors.
