Downtown East is pulling out all the stops this festive season. Lighting up the festive season is the debut of LITE ON!– an arts programme showcasing four IG-worthy and multi-sensory works which are visually stimulating yet meaningful installations by a collective of local artists and groups. Drawing their inspo from imagined landscapes, existing spaces and everyday things, the artistic mixed-media works are a reflection of the world we live in today.
“Eat. Play. Shop. Stay” by BOD (top left)
This features printed patterns and shapes in vibrant colours – red, blue, purple, green and yellow. At night, the installation will come alive with the vibrant LED lights.
“Space of Self” by Space Objekt (top right)
Walk through and interact with this geometrical series of arched gateways that represent strength, support, lightness and openness within density. From its daytime chromatic skin, it turns into a brightly-lit tunnel at night, enveloping you with a riot of colours.
“Bubble Play” by Shophouse & Co. (bottom left)
Centred on bubble wrap packages, the installation comprises vibrant colours, tactile surfaces, and visual prompts to create mini pockets of playful experiences. The artwork aims to help us find joy in everyday moments. Pop bubbles on the bubble wraps if you’re stressed!
“Somewhere Out There” by Speak Cryptic (bottom right)
This multi-sensory experience integrates the artist’s original music with triangle shapes that call to mind a mountain top, ancient pyramids, and the gable or peaked roof structure – symbols of progress.
