Marina Bay Sands was my school’s art project that I did in 2013, to make one of Singapore’s iconic buildings.
For this project I took lots of photos of Marina Bay Sands and noticed that one side of the Marina Bay Sands bent more than the other side. I also used ideas from URA’s version of Marina Bay Sands which had layered pieces of wood. I used this idea by using layered pieces of cardboard.
- Layered the cardboard for the more curvy side of the Marina Bay Sands.
- Used recycled aluminum baking trays for the other side of Marina Bay Sands, facing the sea.
- Paper mached the two items above and spray painted it silver so that it will look the same on the outside.
- For the top, I used block of wood and styrofoam.
- I decorated the Marina Bay Sands with trees made from twigs, straws and styrofoam that I dyed with food colouring.
- Then I painted the sea and the road as a background.
Initially I had wanted to have layers of polystyrene to represent the Sky-Park side of things. However when I started spray painting it silver I noticed that it dissolved the polystyrene. Therefore I had to paper mache the Sky-Park of Marina Bay Sands before I could spray it. I would like the opportunity to redo this with gesso and paint instead.
Note: Some of my model for example boats and trees disappeared from school.
