Watch ArtScience on Screen
The lines between art, science and tech fade away through ArtScience museum’s moving image programme. This innovative online programme highlights a series of specially curated micro-commissions from prominent local and foreign filmmakers. After Late Spring by Lei Yuan Bing and How Can I Tell I Miss You by Eva Tang, the latest short to hit the screen is Madhavan Ram‘s heart-warming film, $alary Day – the first film to be directed and acted by a migrant worker in Singapore.
What’s more, a new eye-catching publication, Screen Zine, will also be launched on 8 July to complement the programme with a playful collection of the latest films from up-and-coming artists, interviews as well as VR features.
