After a two-year hiatus, i Light Singapore returned with 20 artwork installations by 14 artists from Singapore and all around the world.

We paid the exhibition, which runs till Jun 26, a visit to discover some Instagram-worthy spots. 

Here are five of the installations on display and some ideas on how you can spice up your Instagram feed.

1. Ruffled Ice (Singapore)

DP Design, a local interior design company, created Ruffled Ice as a means of highlighting the damage discarded plastics have on the environment.

The installation is created by transforming plastic waste collected by various organisations and turning it into a representation of a melting iceberg and ice caverns.

The brightly lit and tall installation also serves as an ideal backdrop for your outfit-of-the-day pictures. The open space concept provides you with the opportunity to take photos at every corner.

This installation is located at Mist Walk which is near Marina Bay Sands Shoppes.

2. Lightwave: Isle of Light empowered by OPPO (Singapore)

Lightwave: Isle of Light empowered by OPPO, the only ticketed installation of i Light, allows visitors to take photos at five immersive zones.

Located at Marina Bay Lower Broadwalk, the installation incorporates unique features such as light beams, mirror prisms and holographic projections.


The five zones in this installation are Through the Unknown, The Seasons, Reflections, The Prism and Forest of Lights. PHOTO CREDIT: YOUTHOPIA/KASSANDRA KASMAN


Tickets can be purchased on Klook and are priced at $8 on weekdays and $10 on weekends.

3. Collective Memory (Singapore)

Collective Memory is designed by SUTD graduates Ian Soon Wen, Lai Jun Kang, Michelle Gouw, Muhammad Syahid Bin Mustapa and Tan Zhi Wei. 

It honours the evolution of technology over the years by upcycling CDs into a spatial light reflection display.

With the intertwining of nets and CDs, there are a variety of shots and angles that you can consider. You can also make use of the reflection of the CDs and the holes of the nets to creatively frame your pictures.

This installation is located at Breeze Shelter which is near Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade.

4. Firefly Field (The Netherlands)

TOER, a multidisciplinary design studio from the Netherlands, brings the ever-changing bioluminescence Firefly Field to Singapore at The Promontory at Marina Bay.

The artists designed the installation by incorporating rhythmic lights so as to mimic the flashing patterns of fireflies.

As the name of the artwork suggests, the 500 ‘fireflies’ surrounding the field create a luminous background for your pictures.

The installation is strategically positioned such that visitors can capture a photo with the brightly-lit fireflies against the Marina Bay Sands backdrop.

5. Underworld (Sweden and Argentina)

Located at Esplanade Park, Underworld highlights the fragility of the marine ecosystem through the use of giant yellow lanterns and soundscapes of the sea.

Swedish artist Aleksandra Stratimirovic and Argentinian artist Leonel Kaplan were in charge of the design and sound respectively.

The brightly-lit lanterns are situated closely together on the field, making it a good spot for cosy solo or group pictures. You can also zoom in closer towards the lantern to use the nets as a prop in creating a creative shot.

These five artworks are just a few of the 20 installations in i Light Singapore 2022. 

The exhibition is located around Marina Bay Sands and Esplanade Park.
