HAPPENINGS SINGAPORE SPOTLIGHT Art Comes to Life As stunning outside as it is inside, Singapore’s iconic lotus flowershaped ArtScience Museum has opened a new permanent exhibition, ‘Future World.’ Visitors can explore a fully immersive digital universe where 16 spectacular art installations are brought to life and evolve in real-time through visitor presence and participation. The digital installations (which include some created especially for Future World) take visitors on an exciting journey through four key narratives: nature, town, park and space. The exhibition is a collaboration with teamLab, an award-winning Tokyo-based art collective of “ultra-technologists” that includes artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians, architects and designers. 2017: Space Odyssey Blast off to explore the wonders of space at ‘NASA – A Human Adventure’ at Singapore’s ArtScience Museum. The exhibition marshalls an extraordinary collection of over 200 historically significant artefacts from the United States and Soviet Union space programmes. Follow the story of space travel by starting with the early dreamers who ignited a passion for travel to the stars and move on to the brilliant pioneers who took the first brave steps to make trips into space a reality. Objects on display are a mix of original and spaceflown objects and high-fidelity replicas and scale models. Until March 19. A Mega-brave Zip Adrenaline-junkies visiting Singapore will be sure not to miss the MegaZip Adventure Park on Sentosa Island, the city-state’s resort paradise. Guaranteeing guests with the flight of their life is the MegaZip centrepiece attraction, a 75-metrehigh and 450-metre-long zip line which hurtles the brave at 60 miles per hour from the green jungle canopy of Imbiah Hill to the white sands of the Fox Finishing Point.
