Art Running Routes- I Light Marina Bay

Some of you may already know that I run regularly. On Sunday mornings, I run with a group of very dear and wonderful friends who often look for interesting routes so that we are motivated to wake up at 6am , sometimes, 5 , just to run.

It has become almost a habit now that even when I run on my own, I look for places of interest (once I even diverted and shopped for 6 hours instead). Monday night, we hit jackpot when we ran to see the outdoor light installations by international  artists along Marina Bay. I took my camera along and even though we ran for 2 over hours, it felt shorter because it was wonderful.

This is one of my favourite installations. I love the title which is a symbol for the backside. The description says "This installation  is a functional sculpture which illuminates at night while allowing the public to use it as a sitting area." Cher Kuan, if you are reading this, I took the last pic to prove that I took the photographs . Yes, it is with the same camera that you own. Eat your heart out!

Another of my favourite, the pattern on the wall changes depending on who is standing in front of the projector. 

Giant can also be beautiful which is why I have decided that I will make this post here featuring non-mini things for the first time. 

 Details of The Living! Project which is made with plastic cups and 

plastic bottles. The public is encouraged to add to the installation with their own plastic cups.

Thanks to my running mates, I have found so much more beauty in my country.

OOOPS! Nearly forgot this one:

  1. I know I said that if I were you I wouldn't have posted anything before going to Sri Lanka, but I'm so glad you did, these light installations are gorgeous! I think my favourites are The living and The Whirlpool, but if you ask me tomorrow I may have changed my mind, because they are all so beautiful!
    Bon Voyage to Sri Lanka my dear!

    (And even with such a fabulous route I'm so impressed that you can run non-stop for more than two hours!)

  2. Have a nice trip ! a big hug to you and Fay and MarG. The installations are wonderful!!! I feel a bit nostalgic...
    BTW is Fay the guy beside the giant vase? W and I think so.
    Have some rest if you can and take LOTS of pics !!! do not forget.

  3. How beautiful! I think The Living! Project is my favorite also- but they are all very gorgeous.

  6. Hi guys, thanks for stopping by here :):). I came here to look at my pictures again and found your comments :).

    Rosanna, the guy in red running gear in all the pictures was Fai. I posted them so that my friend, Cher Kuan knows that these are photos taken by me :). We use the same camera , you see and in my usual competitiveness, I am trying to show off my skills ..hahah!
