It’s been a while since we visited museums but this week, we checked out the latest exhibitions at the Arts Science Museum located at the Marina Bay Sands.
There are 4 ongoing Exhibits and they are:
- Future World (permanent but installations may change)
- Human + The Future Of Our Species (until 15 Oct 2017)
- The Universe and Art (until 30 July 2017)
- Into The Wild: An Immersive Virtual Adventure (Free)
see full details here
How To Get Here:
There are different ways to get to MBS (car / bus / train / river ferry, etc) and of course, we used the MRT Train Services. You can view the full details here.
Exhibit 1: FUTURE WORLD: WHERE ART MEETS SCIENCE
Part 1: NATURE
Part 2: TOWN
It’s an interactive part of the exhibit and you can draw & colour sheets of paper, then can it later on. After that, your art work will be shown on the big screen (with full animation). Unfortunately, I didn’t capture the moments in this part of the show.
Part 3: PARK
Part 4: SPACE – The Crystal Universe
In my opinion, this is the most beautiful part of the exhibit. It gives a magical feeling when you stand in the middle of these lights that looked like stars. I love the sound & animation but it’s a challenge to capture a beautiful segment because the effects were random and there’s no particular pattern.
Also, please bear in mind that you will be coming in as a group. So as a polite visitor, we should give chance to others who are taking photos. ‘Wag tumambay, besh. Give chance to others, too.
Exhibit 2: HUMAN + THE FUTURE OF HUMAN SPECIES
This is divided into 4 chapters:
- Augmented Abilities
- Encountering Others
- Authoring Environments
- Life at the Edges
Exhibit 3: THE UNIVERSE AND ART
Ekpyrotic String II by Mariko Mori
Spending the weekend afternoon in these exhibits was a pretty interesting experience. My favourite part was the Future World ( esp. the Crystal Universe) while my least fave was The Universe and Art, ‘tho it’s cool to see the books of Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin but it just didn’t appeal so much to me. We didn’t check the Into The Wild, but the 3 exhibits were worth 2 hours. 🙂
