Come Saturday, 10 Dec 2016, visitors to the National Museum of Singapore can expect to witness and immerse themselves in an experience of the first revamp of the Glass Rotuna. Glass Rotunda consists of a massive interactive digital inspiration entitled Story of the Forest created by teamLab and an exhibition entitled Singapore, Very Old Tree by local photographer and artist Robert Zhao.
Story of the Forest
The interactive digital installation is inspired by the National Museum of Singapore’s prized collection – The William Farquhar Collection of National History Drawings. The challenging exhibit measures 15m high by a 80m passage that is contuinued from the bridge to the base of the drum.
The installation utilses cutting-edge technology to transform 69 drawings into animated illusions come to life.
Singapore, Very Old Tree
17 images of trees around Singapore will highlight intimate stories and provide alternative perspectives of Singapore’s history – and the personal connections that Singaporeans have with our local trees. The exhibition was first commissioned by the Singapore Memory Project and was held at the National Library Singapore in May 2015.
The exhibit will offer a series of new installations starting from this month, December 2016.
