Digital Light Canvas Shows
A new edition of the Digital Light Canvas was unveiled from 26 Nov 2022. In the latest installation, families can learn more about the ecosystem of endangered species such as the Siamese Crocodile, the Cave Racer Snake, Southern Torrent Frog, Borneo Birdwing Butterfly, and the Calypso Orchid, among others.
The experience is free to watch but a fee is required to take part.
Replacing the previous experience, Graffiti Nature explores an ecosystem of flora and fauna. Little ones (and those young at heart) can bring various creatures to life with your imagination. Pick up a colouring sheet of an endangered species from the Red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature at the colouring table to create your own version of these endangered species.
They can be scanned and added to the digital forest where they will interact with other digital animals. Little ones can definitely also run around the space as they chase these animals too.
For an additional fee, you can also turn your drawings into souvenirs to take home with you at the Sketch Factory. These items include
- Badge ($3)
- Kids tee-shirt ($20)
- Adult tee-shirt ($25)
- Tote bag ($20)
Virtual Fireworks & Personalised Messages
Digital Light Canvas also has other interactive features where you can use your phone to set off over 30 animated Crystal Fireworks and light displays and even have personalised messages appear on the LED floor - perhaps a surprise gift for the kids or spouse?
Tickets are currently priced at a launch promotion of $10 per person entering the rink, and free for kids below 2 years old. You may also watch the animation outside the rink for free.
Future World single exhibition ticket holders can purchase an admission ticket to Digital Light Canvas by teamLab at S$5 and Sands Rewards Members can enjoy tickets at $7.
Tip: For a bird’s-eye view of the show, head to Level 2. If you would rather admire the show at Level 1, anywhere around Rasapura Masters food hall (B2-50, Canal Level) will offer prime views of Digital Light Canvas.
