Below is the list of 8 exhibitions that you can explore in Singapore.

1) Future World @ ArtScience Museum

The ArtScience Museum collaborated with the international art collective, teamLab, presenting the “Future World: Where Art Meets Science” exhibition of digital interactive installations.

Watch the generative artwork of flower life cycles, from budding to blossoming and withering. Or have fun playing music projected on an interactive artwork slide via Sketch Piston. Not to forget, the popular Sketch Aquarium, which allows visitors of all ages to stretch their creativity in bringing sea creatures on paper to life in the aquarium using a digital scanning method.

Moving on is Exploring New Frontiers, covering four installations from controlling your paper-made flying object (aeroplane, butterfly or hawk) on the big screen using a tablet device in Sketch Flight, to experiencing the amassed light points of Crystal Universe made up to form 3D objects.
