We have been looking forward to visiting the ArtScience Museum by the Marina Bay Sands since we heard about Future World exhibition. A visual and auditory exhibition, it involves the use of technology and human input to immerse the visitors. We were especially keen of a particular installation featuring 170,000 LED lights (as seen later), so look out for that! We also visited other concurrent exhibitions, but we will write about them very soon (in a separate entry).
We had with us our trusted Fujifilm X-T10 and the Instantflex TL70 to capture our journey. Furthermore, we had also recently acquired Lomography’s Daguerrotype Achromat 2.9/64 Arts Lens, which produces soft pictures and also uses aperture plates like Lomography’s Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Arts Lens (we featured this in one of our Christmas entries not too long ago).
Future World: Where Arts Meet Science
In this exhibition, humans and technology interact in a series of environments, designed to intrigue and entertain. The installations are divided according to themes: Nature, Town, Park and Space. We describe below our encounter with the various installations:
After walking through the installation, we reached for the Daguerrotype Lens, and inserted an aperture plate of a 4-point star. Intending to capture bokeh, we certainly got more than we asked for!
We had a lot of fun interacting with the installations at the Future World exhibition. Since it is a permanent exhibition, we can revisit the ArtScience Museum, especially if we can get aperture plates with different designs (for more creative effects using the bokeh). There is an entry fee, but it certainly is worth it!
