Time Out Says

Seems like we can't get enough of award-winning Japanese art collective teamLab's digital artworks as it continues to wow us even through our screens. Since the lotus-shaped ArtScience Museum is closed temporarily, it's turning to the Internet to take us on a virtual tour around its two popular exhibitions: Future World and 2219. 

These digital programmes are part of ArtScience at Home, the museum's online series that features guided exhibition tours and workshops, as well as flagship public programmes including ArtScience Late, Conversations and ArtScience on Screen, from the comfort of our homes – all translated for the online space.

Future World is a mind-bender – it takes visitors on an interactive journey of lights, digital art and magic. 2219, on the other hand, invites us to peer into the imaginary worlds – neither a utopian or dystopian view of the distant future – hatched by various artists, architects, filmmakers, writers and theatre companies from Singapore and beyond, while resisting the clichés of science fiction. Highlighting two very different exhibitions, ArtScience at Home's virtual tours are guided by Museum Ambassadors, giving you a closer look at the installations displayed without having to pay a single dime.

Other programmes to look out for include Love Poems with Wind Chimes by Cyril Wong, workshops on making your own mirror, paper beads, moving mechanical device, and space mission patch, and various talks with key speakers.

All programmes are available to view at Before you start firing up the keyboard warrior in you, note that the tours were all filmed before the circuit breaker.
