Light to Night Festival 2020

About the project

The School of Interactive & Digital Media (SIDM) worked with Artist Safuan Johari and Brandon Tay for the Art Skins on Monuments, a highlight at the the Light to Night Festival organised by National Gallery Singapore.

Artist Safuan Johari was among the co-curators for Art Skins on Monuments. Together with Brandon Tay, as curators, they select a list of artists to contribute content which will be projected onto various facades around the Civic District. Our students were invited to deliver engaging content which will be projected onto the iconic art house façade.


Forty-four Diploma in Motion Graphic Design Year 2 students were involved in the project. They were further divided into 15 teams and each team were tasked to develop a 60-second motion clip, taking into consideration the monuments’ architecture.

As part of the project, Safuan and Brandon conducted several masterclasses for our students and provide guidance to our students from concept to execution. Our students gained valuable knowledge in the area of projection-mapping through the two mentors. The students went through a critique session with the two mentors and the top 3 clips were selected for the festival.

Join us in celebrating the hardwork of our students and the experience they have gained at the Light to Night Festival happening from 10 - 19 Jan, 2020.
