Opening ceremony of Science Centre Singapore latest exhibition “Interplay”.

This blockbuster unique exhibition is coming to Singapore for the first time in May that combines arts and science together to create magic. Many people think that the subjects Arts and Science are very distinct and different from each other. Art is normally seen as abstract, colourful and imaginative, whereas Science is normally seen as technical and concrete. To combine arts and science mean to bring the imagination and colour into scientific presentation. This is exactly how this exhibition is.

The exhibition attracts both young and old. There are 21 amazing exhibits by international and local artists in the exhibition hall. One of the key highlights in the exhibition is “Deep Space”, a multidimensional space which allows us to step into the world of stars and planets in the solar system. If you are a fan of astronomy, besides visiting “Interplay” and its Deep Space exhibit, do catch the movie “Back to the Moon for Good”, live shows on exploring the planets and cosmic surfing at the Omni Theatre (please click HERE to read Our Parenting World’s review of the reopening of Omni Theatre).

“Kinetic Light Sculpture” is by renowned physicist Paul Friedlander. He uses a visual medley of light and motion which is presented by shining light onto a rapidly rotating rope that is attached to two fixed points. Visitors will not be able to see the rope once it is set to motion and colours from the chromastrobe will reflect a range of colours once it is started to move rapidly.

Recollection Six is developed by Ed Tannenbaum invites participants to stand in front of a large video screen. Once the person starts to move, his/her image will be recorded by the video camera and transmitted to a computer with special image processing capabilities. Our team had fun playing with his image and it is recorded instantly and projected onto the screen to create a painting of movement.

The exhibition is interactive and fun for the visitors. For those who are fans of playing electronic games, there is an interactive game called Game Border by Tine Papendick, where one could play 6 different sets of video games linked to each other, starting from the old type of analogue TV console TV games continuing to the latest digital video game. Your character will move from one screen to the next once you have completed the challenges in that screen.

Visitors can also create digital graffiti in one of the exhibits, where they could take a digital photo of themselves which is then projected to the screen and you can paint different types of graffiti on the photo. For those who want to paint graffiti on the wall but not get into trouble with the authority, this is the place you can paint electronic graffiti legally.
