In collaboration with Gardens by the Bay, art collective teamLab is holding an ever-changing, immersive exhibition #futuretogether from 16 January to 31 March 2020. The exhibition is held in support of the Singapore Bicentennial, a year-long series of commemorative events to mark the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the British in Singapore. The exhibits are available across both indoor and outdoor spaces of Bayfront Plaza.
Autonomous Resonating Life on the Water and Resonating Trees- Dragon Lake
The ovoids of light standing on the surface of the Dragonfly Lake shine brightly together with the trees on the lakeshore. When you push an ovoid, the colour of its light changes, and it emits a sound tone specific to that color. The light resonates out to the ovoids and trees nearby. The sound tone resonates out continuously in the same way as the light, spreading throughout the ovoids and trees. It was beautiful sight!
Message Pillar-The Singapore Bicentennial
Interactive Digital Installation where you look at the pole of the Message Pillar through your smarphone camera using the Message Pillar smartphone app, you will see words floating around the pillar. If you use the app to write and post a message, that message will float together with the other previously-posted messages and join them to form a tree.
Flowers and People-Giant Lattice Mass, A Whole Year per Hour
Flowers bloom and scatter for eternity on a giant latticed mass (15m high, 38m wide). A year of seasonal flower bloom over the course of an hour, continuously scattering and changing. When people come close and move around, the flowers scatter, But when people approach and remain still, the flowers bloom more abundantly than usual. Previous visual states can never be replicated and will never reoccur. So cool, isn’t it!
Animals of Flowers, Symbiotic Lives (INDOOR EXHIBITS)
Animals with flowers growing on their bodies come and go. This is available indoor installation and when people touch the animals, the flower petals scatter. If people touch the animals too much, all of the flowers will scatter, and the animals will die and fade away. The installation features animals inhabiting Singapore and the surrounding area bloom with flowers including local orchid flowers.
Flowers Bloom in an Infinite Universe inside a Teacup (INDOOR EXHIBITS)
This is served at EN TEA HOUSE with a fee of S$3.00 per entry. This is interesting where they make tea and flowers bloom insde the teacup. Move the teacup or pick it up and the entire flower petals scatter and spread outside the cup. Flowers bloom infinitely as long as there is tea.
It comes with two choices of tea- Iced Yuzu or Teh Tarik that incorporate Singapore’s culture in it. The work is rendered in real time by a computer program and thus, the artwork is ever-changing and can never be seen again. The previous state will never be repeated.
Reversible Rotation-Black in White (INDOOR EXHIBITS)
Spatial Calligraphy rotates in the artwork space, every aspect rotating in the same direction, but depending on perception. This is located towards the tea appreciation direction. The artwork reconstructs Japanese sho in three dimensional space and expresses the depth, speed and power of the brush stroke.
Continuous Life and Death at the Now of Eternity II (INDOOR EXHIBITS)
Lastly, step in the flow of time of reality flowers are born, bloom, then in the course of time they wither and die. The flowers are eternally repeating the process of life and death. The artwork is not a pre-recorded image that is played back. It continuously renders the artwork in real time and the moment can never be seen again.
