We spotlight five interactive lighting installations that lit up Singapore’s streets recently as part of the annual Night Lights initiative.

At the Singapore Art Museum, an interactive video-mapping project titled The Magic Melody translated sounds generated by the mobile devices of people on-site into gigantic visual creations on the museum’s facade.

The migration of Paloma birds formed the inspiration for this project. Here, the stylised birds were placed on a large tree at the National Museum of Singapore, with the light on their wings and tail revealing their shapes.
Paperplanes at School of the Arts was a child-like interpretation of what could be an airport: paper planes lit by multi-coloured lights took off from a lighted box in all directions, suggesting a sense of possibilities.
In project Type Light, located at The Cathay, the public was invited to “play and communicate their own dream” where their typed messages were made to appear on a giant display built out of 90 bars of LEDs, visible from various angles of vision, and for all to see.
Project: Type Light
In Water Light Graffiti at Raffles City, the public was invited to draw or write ephemeral messages using water, which appeared as light against a wall of LEDs. By combining a natural element (water) and technology (light), users could even play with the weather or the evaporation speed of water.
