REWILD Our Planet: Singapore’s First Augmented Reality Experience with Nature

Documentaries such as the Planet Earth and Blue Planet have enthralled viewers with its stunning footage and imagery of living and breathing cycle of nature. With that same vision in mind, the same team behind those series set out to make Our Planet, a documentary series in the same vein as its predecessors.

To go one step beyond in educating the public about the protection of our environment, Netflix…

The Minimalism Exhibition: A Regional Movement on the Usage of Materials and Space

For the first time ever, National Gallery Singapore has collaborated with the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands to launch Minimalism: Space. Light. Object. on 16 November 2018. The five-month exhibition will be the first survey of Minimalistic art held in Southeast Asia, and the first major Minimalism exhibition to include artists from this region as part of an expanded global perspective on the movement.

Walking With Beasts: Theo Jansen’s Famous Moving Sculptures Unveiled at ArtScience Museum

Conventional ways of thinking about art, science and engineering would typically lead us to conceive of them as separate, mutually exclusive realms. Dutch artist Theo Jansen, however, seamlessly straddles their boundaries with his world-famous sculptures and inorganic life – the Strandbeests. Conceptualised initially as a solution to global warming, the Strandbeests are synonymous with the iconic PVC pipes that they’re made of. The unique form of artificial life is birthed from an artistic application of engineering principles. The Strandbeests posses a looming grace especially when they’re seen in movement, walking in unique gaits reminiscent of real-life animal behaviour. Aided by…

Art & Bytes: Betwixt Festival To Launch End-February

Interstice – that’s the theme at the inaugural Betwixt Festival, a six-day event launching this February at the ArtScience Museum. Referring to “gaps, cracks, and a very small intervening space”, the theme sets the tone for the meeting of art, science, and technology. “As our social landscape swiftly becomes more and more digitalised, new mediums of expression emerge entwined in technology. Coding and physical computing have become tools for artists to create art that has an interactive nature to it, art that requires stimulation and participation to be art – in summary, digital, interactive art.” Falling almost perfectly in line with…
