sam is cool

it is amazing how Singapore turned this old mission school into one of Southeast Asia's best contemporary art museum. courtyards and halls transformed from time to time aligning to its visual arts theme.
 
on that night, the ground floors were filled with people as the museum's Glass Hall was turned into a club, Waterloo Courtyard into an open dinning space and Queen Courtyard into a visual dark room of blue jelly fish shaped lanterns.
 
the second level were mostly art installations and several video showrooms. each a uniquely designed with a modern representation of making yourself part of the art. video interface was fun. 
 
i rarely go to museums but it was the Night Light show "Lyrical Perspective"last September 2 that got my attention when we were walking along Bras Basah street. a harmonical display of lights and sounds at the main entrance of Singapore Art Museum. 
you can check the actual video taken during the light show "Night Lights: Lyrical Perspective.
for upcoming events and exhibits at the website of Singapore Art Museum.

All very interesting. Those blue lamps look so attractive!

I'm always awed at how other countries are able to give life to otherwise old, crumbling buildings. When I visited London's Tate Modern - I couldn't believe its transformation from being a former power plant! Perhaps there's something old & crumbling in the Manila just waiting to be revived?

I love the jelly fish lanterns para ang ganda nito sa room ko:) and How I wish Manila can do something like this to give life to old buildings...this would benefit our tourism:)haist ang tanong may budget kaya:(
