Egied Simons HEARTBEAT CITY LIGHTS HeartBeat City Lights is inspired by this year’s theme, “Light+HeART”. Looking at Singapore’s traffic as our blood circulatory system, Simons sees traffic signs as “heartbeats” that regulate the car flow of the nation. At night, the moving traffic creates streams of white and red lights. When seen through a video camera with a lens set out of focus, the car lights become a colorful dance of circles. This phenomenon is filmed by a camera on top of the Esplanade Bridge and projected onto an underside of the bridge, allowing visitors strolling under the bridge to enjoy the vibrant “heartbeat” of the city.
