City Gazing Singapore

City Gazing Singapore shows the city of Singapore as if you would fly over it at night.

The Idea

City Gazing Singapore shows the city of Singapore as if you would fly over it at night, with all the street lights, homes and roads lit up. With a special animation, the work lets visitors time travel over the past 100 years, to see how Singapore has grown from a couple of key arterial roads into the international hub it is today.

Suspended over the Lawn at the Marina Bay, the city is turned upside down before the starry sky. In many ways, the moment of experiencing City Gazing Singapore feels both grand and humble. As VOUW adopts the ‘overview effect’, there is a mental shift in awareness of how fragile life on earth is by exposing oneself to the vastness of the world. As the anchor piece of i Light Singapore’s sustainability hub, the work invites visitors to think more about the future of the city from a humble and sustainable perspective.
