When Singapore Night Festival came round this year, I wasn’t particularly keen on going because I found previous years rather uninteresting. But at the eleventh hour, a sense of claustrophobia propelled me to drive into town to get a breath of fresh air and check out what is on display.

Most of the exhibitions were run of the mill. Projections on the SAM, fire throwers at the NMS. However, one exhibition left a deeper impression on me than I expected possible – Divine Trees by Clément Briend. When I look at the ethereal projections of peaceful, divine, almost transcendent faces, I feel a unprecedented sense of comfort.

Hidden until viewed from the right angle, navigating the trees where the visages have been projected on is an adventure in itself. Conceptually, it also suggests that belief in the divine is but a matter of one’s point of view of reality. Some times, the projections spill beyond the trees and the faces looks as if they were attached to the sky.

I imagines, when people talked about gods looking upon them from high, this is what they had in mind.
