This December, the Glass Rotunda at the National Museum of Singapore will be reopening after spending two years under renovation. The Glass Rotunda showcases two inspiring installations, the Story of the Forest and Singapore, Very Old Tree.
Story of the Forest is the work of renowned Japanese digital art collective teamLab. The larger-than-life art installation features drawings from the museum’s prized collection, The William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings. There’s a twist, however, as it utilises cutting-edge technology to bring these drawings to life. Animated illustrations interact with visitors as they explore the Rotunda.
As visitors make their way to the bottom of the Rotunda, they encounter the Singapore, Very Old Tree exhibit, by acclaimed local photographer and artist, Robert Zhao. It showcases images of trees around Singapore, accompanied by intimate stories surrounding each one. The unique perspective on Singapore’s history highlights the peculiar, but nonetheless priceless connections that Singaporeans share with their flora.
Visitors can look forward to experiencing the new installations at the revamped Glass Rotunda from 10 December 2016.
