Experience the magic of the flora and fauna in Singapore through Story of the Forest!
What is it?
Story of the Forest is an immersive installation of flora and fauna. Created by teamLab, it features 69 drawings from the William Farquhar Collection of Natural History Drawings.
Your journey will begin on a bridge where flowers of various colours will fall all around you like rain accompanied by lulling music. Spend a few moments here, soaking up the ambience.
When you feel ready, walk through the curtain at the end of the walkway. You’ll come upon a winding pathway where you can walk alongside the virtual wildlife in their habitat.
Enter through a curtain at the end of your path and you will find yourself at the first floor of the glass rotunda, the destination of the exhibition.
You can walk through the circular room and watch the trees sprout or you can simply lie back on one of the bean bags available, which is what I did.
So captivated by the display, I had lost track of the time.
