Singapore Night Festival: Behind Moondreaming


“The sun watches what I do, but the moon knows all my secrets.”

"Behind Moondreaming" is a behind-the-scenes sharing by Spatial Investigation Department, School of Design, NYP, about the installation titled 'Moondreaming' on Friday, 25 Aug, 7 - 7.30pm*


This installation invites visitors to be part of an immersive spatial experience that hopes to evoke a sense of collective dreaming. Through a specially designed orbiting apparatus, light and shadow will converge and bring life to the stories hidden in the shadows of the cityscape. The narratives in this imaginary cityscape is illuminated only by ‘moonlight’. You are invited to build and shape the spatial and experiential design of this dreamed up world.

Come dream with us in this transient cityscape that transforms throughout the night, where only the moon remains unflinching and undeterred.

Date: 25 August 2017 (Friday) and 26 August 2017 (Saturday)
Time: 7pm - 11pm
Admission: Free

*Registration on Peatix is required only for the sharing session. Registration opens at 6.30pm. Due to limited capacity, if there are no-shows, tickets will be released at 7pm.


The National Design Centre (NDC) is the nexus for all things design. This is where designers and businesses congregate to exchange ideas, conduct business, use its facilities and obtain assistance from the national agency for design, the DesignSingapore Council. Centrally located in the arts, cultural, learning and entertainment district in the Bras Basah-Bugis area, it is well placed to invite the public to learn about design through its exhibitions and programmes.


About Shophouse & Co's part in curating Monthly Community Engagement Programmes at NDC
These programmes are essentially a piece of the puzzle in creating a sense of place in this building - one where Design and Community intersects. With this as a larger objective, Shophouse & Co was appointed to curate and produce once-a-month programmes over an 18-month period to engage the wider community and introduce them to the fascinating world of design.


Nanyang Polytechnic - Spatial Investigation Department

The Spatial Investigation Department is a collective consisting of staff, graduates and students winged under the Diploma of Spatial Design and Diploma of Sustainable Architectural Design Course. We seek to engage the society by negotiating the boundary with other disciplines in the periphery of architecture.

In the Diploma of Spatial Design and Sustainable Architectural Design, we aim to develop students who are independent and curious in seeking knowledge towards creativity where confidence is instilled not only in articulating their percept and concept but also in the skill of making. Students will acquire all rounded design expertise in place-making, designing experiences and strategies for different spatial applications.
