Time Out Says

With more than 2,500 rooms and suites, Marina Bay Sands claims to be the biggest hotel in Singapore. We believe them. The rooms offer views of the South China Sea or Marina Bay and the Singapore skyline, but let’s be honest: the Moshe Safdie-designed SkyPark is the real crowd puller. Sitting prettily atop the three hotel towers 200 metres high, hotel guests and outsiders (who part with $20 for the privilege) can enjoy unfettered views from the Observation Deck. The best views are to be had from the infinity pool, the largest of its kind. Swimming is for hotel guests only but outsiders can watch smug guests swim while munching on $6 hot dogs, which is almost as fun. Sort of.

What's On

Art Encounters: Perpetual Motion

There's now an unusual sight outside The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Three containers labelled 'Art Encounters', alongside mammoth kinetic outdoor sculptures have seemingly popped up overnight.  But don't worry, this isn't the start of some epic apocalypse. The repurposed containers are part a travelling exhibition by non-profit organisation Art Outreach, which is now on its seventh iteration. This edition is called Perpetual Motion, and features a series of kinetic outdoor sculptures that is the brainchild of local artist Gerald Leow. As hinted by the exhibition's name, these sculptures are designed to be turned by hand or by the wind, with the circular motion of activating these sculptures speaks to the way we continually give new meaning to the things we interact with. Gerald is also exhibiting a showcase of maquettes, drawings and photographs that delve into his creative process in tandem. So go ahead, step into the containers and experience the genius of the artist yourself – or meet him on opening weekend from 11am to 1pm and 4pm to 6pm. You don't have to rush down to check it out, either. The exhibition is running from January 8 to February 6 at Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza – so you've got a month to check it out if you happen to be in the area.

The Art of Dreams

A dreamy purple inflatable installation is coming to the Lion City! Aptly titled Remember your dreams, this installation by French artist and architect Cyril Lancelin boasts a massive outdoor public-art installation made of inflatable and lilac polyester tubes. Commissioned by Porsche, the colour of the artwork is inspired by the automobile’s 911 Carrera RS 2.7 in the same shade. With the installation feeling like an illusion, Lancelin wants visitors to step out of reality and explore the motifs of dreams as they walk through this fantasy-like experience.
