A light installation titled "Digital Wattle" which is an adaptation from Australia's floral emblem is illuminated with Singapore's financial skyline silhouetted in the background, Thursday, March 6, 2014, in Singapore. "Digital Wattle" is a device exploring the interplay between individual ethnic groups co-existing in one city. When the flowers sway gently in the wind, they will slowly change from pure white to different colours to represent the new mix of cultures residing in the city. The iLight Marina Bay exhibition features innovative and environmentally sustainable light art installations from around the world, displayed along the Singapore river.
