as part of the project, safdie has introduced an art path within the resort.
over the course of six months and having looked at the work of about 30 aritsts,
he has selected seven installations by five international artists including sol lewitt,
antony gormley and zheng chongbin. the pieces selected are meant to play on
environmental influences including light, water and wind, integrating art with architecture.
the worth of the public art situated at MBS is around 40 - 50 million singaporean dollars.
'drift' by antony gormley
'drift' took UK-based artist antony gormley one and a half years from conceptualization
to completion. he wanted to create a matrix that would not only occupy the space within MBS,
but also activate it. the installation is a massive three dimensional stainless polyhedral matrix
comprised of more than 16, 000 steel rods and more than 8, 320 steel nodes.

'rising forest' by zheng chongbin is a ceramic sculpture which is composed of 83 large-scale
glazed stoneware ceramic vessels occupying approximately 4,000 square meters in MBS's
hotel atrium. each of the vessels weight approximately 1,200 kg and measure 3 meters tall.
each vessel holds a tree, creating a 'canopy' across the interior and exterior areas of the atrium
