Visitors to the Marina Bay Sands ArtScience Museum in Singapore this season can experience an intense and spectacular display of digital art. Each visitor to the showing will provide input for the continually running software which creates the ambiently interactive display. The Way Of Birds exhibit demonstrates with moving lights how a flock of birds can navigate a complex geography without a defined leader. The flock of lights moves around the room in acrobatic patterns while avoiding the people among them.
The 19 individual exhibits express questions about life and death, climate change, and various other wonders of the universe. The theme of the entire array of technology is impermanence, offering a transient and user generated display that will depend on who is where and what they are doing. The Future World experience at the ArtScience Museum has been designed by several luminaries including teamLab. This international digital art collective have a large back-catalogue of science and art blends which inspire new generations of thinkers.
100 Years Sea is an exhibit designed to push home the effects of sea-level rising. By showing interactive graphics, the level of the water on bodies of land will change over time. By the end of the program, the idea is that 100 years of predicted sea-level rise based on current rising will be shown to drastically alter the way land-masses appear. Other less dramatic displays include a demonstration of cherry blossom forming and then falling like confetti. This cycle of birth, death, and change is what inspires many great works of art.
