With rows of fairy lights and glittery baubles, Singapore is illuminated with a festive mood – albeit a quieter one this season. This year, however, Orchard Road and Gardens by the Bay aren’t the only locales grabbing locals’ attention. As the festive season gets underway, Downtown East is pulling out all the stops with multi-sensory light and art installations, as well as new retail, dining, and lifestyle venues to create memorable moments with loved ones.
From now till 21 March 2021, the lifestyle destination is illuminated for Lite On!, an arts programme that showcases four Instagram-worthy works by local artists Speak Cryptic, BOD, Space Objekt, and Shophouse & Co. These visually stimulating yet meaningful mixed-media pieces take inspiration from imagined landscapes, existing spaces, and everyday things.
Throughout the holiday season and into 2021, those in the Lion City can take a sonic trip in a pyramid, walk through a kaleidoscopic tunnel, surround themselves with playful illustrations, and pop bubbles on the bubble-wrapped staircase.
