Ron Arad's 720° at Gardens by the Bay
By SENATUS Travel | 5 September 2016

As part of this year's Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA), renowned architect and designer Ron Arad, famous for his constant experimentation with materials and structures, presents 720° — an outdoor video installation made up of 5,600 silicon cords totalling more than 37km in length, suspended from a height of 8m and made into a circle 18m in diameter. The lightweight rods, which sway easily, serve as an interactive video screen for both sides of the 360-degree stage.

Held at The Meadow @ Gardens by the Bay, the opening week of 720° will feature a specially created production — melding live performance with digital multimedia — helmed by film director, video artist and performance-maker Brian Gothong Tan.

Titled Tropical Traumas, "it will involve six performers and is basically inspired by the writings of Sophia Hull, second wife of Sir Stamford Raffles, and Alfred Wallace regarding their explorations into the Malay Archipelago”, explained Tan.

"It is a contemporary deconstructed piece, not historical, but with a more surreal and dream-like approach towards the stories."
