Lighted Scenic Place In Singapore

Lighted Scenic Place In Singapore

Illuminated from 7pm to 1am nightly during the Singapore Biennale 2008, Lightlines is a public art installation by Hans Peter Kuhn from Germany that lights up the bowels of Esplanade Bridge. It will turn the Esplanade Bridge scene into a lighted scenic place in Singapore until November 16, 2008.

Picture: Lightlines at a lighted scenic place in Singapore.

Six 50-metre-long rods of neon light are placed through the triangular space under the Esplanade Bridge columns. With twilight, these strips of neon will glow pale white that are meant to inspire wonder.

Visitors can view this lighted scenic place from the Merlion Park , Esplanade Park and along the stretch next to Singapore's Esplanade Theatres By The Bay. Those who take a boat out for a cruise on the Marina Bay can get a closer view of this lighted scenic place.

Lightlines reminds me of the light-sabres used in combat in a George Lucas galaxy far far away, where Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Alec Guinness (Ben Obiwan Kenobe) fought David Prowse (Darth Vader) in the original 1977 Stars Wars classic.

Like Stars Wars, that other magically lighted place with lots of scenic shots, this Singapore Biennale SB 2008 installation is something of a wonder to me. Visit this lighted art installation and place yourself under its scenic spell. May the Force be with you.

What else do the lighted neon tubes remind you of?
