After Light

Marina Bay iLight festival - Singapore

Light and spirituality in Singapore

Afterlight was a large scale fourteen screen video installation across twenty seven shipping containers that was developed for the Singapore light festival iLight Marina Bay in 2012. The final work comprises of three sections (divine, industrial and human) that look at the context of light in a contemporary Asian city like Singapore – from the flame in a temple to the neon tube in a shopping mall.

The structure also included four separate art installation spaces by local and New Zealand artists Interrupt. The work was adapted for four screens so that i could be shown at other light festivals.
