Singapore Science Centre Takes a Leap of Faith With Unproven Young Artists
The Singapore Science Centre (SCS) collaborates with established local and foreign artists for its art tech exhibition on a yearly basis.
But this year, however, the SCS decided to collaborate with Gushcloud Entertainment for this year’s exhibit — and they decided to put their faith in burgeoning young Singaporeans from local art institutions for the first time.
As part of South-east Asia’s signature Visualisation Festival, this year’s exhibition, named “Light Field”, involves the conceptualization of art and science.
It’s the culmination of the efforts of 8 student artists with scientists and research institutions.
Future Of Singaporean Art
The 8 local youth artists hail from the various art institutions in Singapore:
• Priyageetha Dia, LASALLE College of the Arts graduate
• Muhammad Amirul, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) undergraduate
• Howie Kim, LASALLE College of the Arts undergraduate
• Tan Yang, Singapore-based multi-disciplinary artist, photographer and producer
• Sylvester Tan, Viena Lee, King Lam and Bridgel Sze, School of Art, Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University (NTU)
If the students were lacking in experience, they clearly did not show it as their exhibits are visually spell-binding.
Free For A Limited Time
With technology playing a greater part in our everyday lives, such interdisciplinary fusions allow a glimpse of the future.
“Light Field” will be open to the public from July 28 to August 13 at the Science Centre Singapore, Hall B, from 10am to 6pm daily.
The Science Centre is at:
