Changi Airport's new interactive art offers fun for tourists and locals

Travellers passing through Changi Airport can now enjoy new art installations and interactive photo opportunities across its three terminals. 

In a statement released today (July 29), the airport said that the highlight of these installations will be an interactive digital photo wall that makes use of motion-sensing technology at Terminal 2 (T2). 

With the LED "Dots Portrait Wall", travellers will be able to snap monochromatic portraits of themselves and bring them home as mementos.

From there, the portraits can be edited to feature iconic local backgrounds like Gardens by the Bay and the Merlion Park. Thereafter, travellers can even choose to send their portraits directly to friends and family over email. 

On the other side of the interactive screen is a "Motion Silhouette Wall". This wall responds to movements in real time and is something that kids, and maybe some adults, will likely find entertaining. 

Adopting the same motion-sensing technology, passengers can move and interact with the animation that appears on the wall. 

On top of these, cardboard art pieces have been installed across the three terminals depicting famous places of interest like the Singapore Flyer, the Sultan Mosque as well as the Supertrees of Gardens by the Bay. 

These can all be found along luggage claim belts at each terminal. 

Departing passengers can also explore Changi's new photo spots which feature some of Singapore's favourite streets and roads. 

For example, over at Terminal 1, passengers can pose with Changi's famous trishaw that stands against a 3D background of Chinatown. 

These new showcases are part of a two-year collaboration between the Changi Airport Group and the Singapore Tourism Board which began in April last year.
