Missed Yayoi Kusama’s much talked about exhibition in
Singapore? Fret not! There is another spectacular installation for you to check
out at the SkyAvenue at Resorts World Genting. In today’s age where media
displays are becoming the everyday norm, SkySymphony brings a whole new ball
game, quite literally, with 1001 winch balls. Best of all, entrance is free!
As the only fixed kinetic ball display in the world, each
unassuming white orb that is suspended at a four-storey height has the ability
to go through the whole colour spectrum and
move 17.5m in 6 seconds as the first multimedia winch attraction in Asia. Three-storey
high LED walls made up of small LED modules to form wraparound screens (the
biggest in Malaysia), following the curves of SkyAvenue serve as a backdrop to the
kinetic balls. Costing RM28 million, international experts conceptualised the
installation and brought it to life after 18 months of preparation,
transforming SkyAvenue into something beyond your average shopping mall.
Using personalised sound control technology, the orchestra
of audio, visual and motion graphics programming are presented through three
original shows. Wonderful shapes emerge and transform fluidly from the
suspended balls, using them to create simple but magical effects like raindrops,
the likeness of a bird, a toothbrush and even heart shapes resulting in a
unique 360 degree and 3D experience.
The sound, display and balls work together to weave 4-minute
stories such as ‘Forest’ a bioluminescent abstract tale of the Flora and Fauna
that form the natural habitat of Malaysia that is the pride of the country. In
‘Urban Symphony’, a love story between Boy and Girl delightfully unfolds and
ends with them dancing in the city streets that will make your feet tap along
to the tune. ‘The Goddess’ is a grand, live-action piece set in space that brings
you from the birth of a divine woman from a lotus flower and her travels
through forest and ice.
Words don’t do this installation justice as it is definitely
something that you have to see for yourself to believe and appreciate. It is
definitely worth snapping some photos and videos as well as it is definitely
the most ‘Instagrammable’ attraction at Resorts World Genting that will
brighten up your feed!
Show times: Every day, 10am-6pm (two-hour intervals), after
6pm till midnight (hourly)
