iLight 2019: Creations from local artists and potentially, you
Yun, our locally-grown industrial designer, is back at it again. She will debut “The Rainbow Connection”at iLight 2019, as the successor of her internationally-featured installation, “MoonFlower”. The installation will feature islands of solar light modules in up-cycled PET containers suspended in the air, which come alive as they sway in the wind.
As its name implies, “The Rainbow Connection” also features community involvement. The light installation will have members of the public and not-for-profit organisations join Yun at the pre-festival workshops around Singapore to design 800 used cookie containers. You invited to sign up for any of the three upcoming community workshops and contribute towards the cause of sustainable development!
