No, not the Formula 1 Grand Prix Season, though you’ll be forgiven for mistaking otherwise. We’re actually getting all in a flurry waiting for Digital Nights 2010, which dazzling displays of light, art and interactive media have us already drooling in anticipation.
Seriously, Singapore has never looked so cool. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at the teaser trailer below:
Inspired by the famed Nuit Blanc night events across Europe dedicated to making contemporary arts more accessible to a large audience, Digital Nights spans Orchard Road and the Singapore Art Museum. And here’s what you absolutely can’t miss!
Strut like a VIP down the Red Carpet, possibly the most prominent display in the festival, set along the Ngee Ann City walkway. This unique interactive light display invites you to cast your shadow and transform the carpet as you continue walking. Guaranteed to make you feel like a superstar!
For something that will make your date swoon (but hopefully not think you’re cheap), check out Love is in the Air – an iPhone-based sound walk and interactive game trail created for the festival. Traipse down Orchard Road gathering clues to unravel the secret to winning vouchers from stores and more.
We also highly recommend making the trip down to the Art Museum for some equally stunning interactive installations. Catch a glimpse of the city of the future with A Digital Experience, or interact with a strangely compelling plant ballet in Ultra Nature.
A Digital Experience
Lastly, round up your otherworldly experience with a full-on sensory assault with Binary Waves, where urban flows transform into lushly luminous, sonic and kinetic waves.
