This year, we welcomed two 3D art museums, Trick Eye Museum and Alive Museum, from Korea to Singapore. Last May, I shared with you my experience on Trick Eye Museum and how I enjoyed myself there.
Today, I am going to share with you on the newly-opened Alive Museum located at Suntec City. Launched in June, the museum is filled with visual art illusions that provides photo opportunities! The difference between both museums is that for Alive Museum, you are able to play with some of the objects. Two of the objects which caught my eye will be the windmill and the trampoline.
You just have to blow on the windmill and once it is fast enough, the wind will blow Marilyn’s dress and music will start playing. Marilyn will then try her best to stop the dress from flying up and exposing herself. It can be funny and pervertic at the same time! 🙂
Don’t get me started on the trampoline! I felt like a small child playing on it. Thank God, there was no queue or crowd when I was there hence I jumped like no one is looking. Therefore, as you can see, there no pictures as my pictures turned out blur! Ooops!
Also, you need to check out the experimental art, The Camera Obsucura exhibit, where one of you become an artist and the other, a masterpiece. Basically, your friend will enter a room and with the screen it will capture you, who will be seating. With a transparency and paper, your friends will get to draw you. I couldn’t stay still for long and my friend gave up drawing after a few attempts!
Other than that, some of the paintings seems similar to Trick Eye Museum.
During my visit to the Trick Eye Museum, I didn’t managed to take pictures with the ballerina as I was shy. Since there was no one at that point of time, I tried lifting my leg for a pose. Behind those smile is pain. Wearing jeans while doing this pose is a challenge!
I’m sure you are familiar with the wings. The difference is that at Alive Museum, the bicycle is not present.
Here are some of my favourite paintings:
Move over Mary Jane, Atiqah is here!
I really love the disco lights. It makes our picture so colourful!
When I first saw this I immediately, put my head on the object, not knowing that it should be the other way round. I did not realise there is a hole to put my hands else, the picture would be more dramatic. Actually, it does not matter if your picture is not similar to the example given. It is all to your creativity. In the end, I still love this picture!
Help! The Zombie is coming for me! Pardon my happy face. I think it is because I so close to escaping! 🙂
I’m caught in the middle of a crocodile’s mouth. Will I make it?!
Who is the baby now?! 😦
After posing for the camera for at least an hour, your stomach must be begging for food. How about vising Burger King, which is next to The Alive Museum!
For every purchased of the Alive Museum tickets, you will get a free Burger King meal (worth $7.85) which includes either Fish’N Crisp or Chick’N Crisp burger, a small fries and a small coke. Before redeeming the free meal, do not forget to like Alive Museum Singapore Facebook Page! Hurry, offer ends 30 September 2014 and this offer is only redeemable at Burger King Suntec City!
Oh yes, there is free WiFi access inside the museum. You can instantly update your Instagram on the go while still being in the museum. You might need the help of the filter because the lighting in the museum is dark!
Overall, I enjoyed myself at the Alive Museum even though, most of the times, I had difficulties finding the exit door to check out the next paintings. I wished there had put more directional sings to facilitate those who are clueless. It can get especially hectic when there is a crowd. At times, I find myself bumping into someone or entering their frame while taking pictures as there is limited space to move about.
Despite all the difficulties I faced, if there is a chance to go back to Alive Museum, I would because 30% of the exhibits will be switched for new ones each year. Maybe I will visit them during the upcoming Christmas since they will bringing in different unique paintings and exhibits during special occasions such as Christmas and the Lunar New Year.
