The Jewel Vortex

The HSBC Rain Vortex in Jewel Changi Airport near Nostalgia Hotel Singapore

Singapore’s interactive, high-tech digital sculpture in Singapore's Jewel Changi Airport. It is a seven-meters-tall art piece composed of aluminum and color-changing LED displays. Visitors are encouraged to interact with the art piece. It is composed of four different parts; the Core, the Infinity Mirror, the vortex and the anemone like petals that surrounds the core. The Core is the centerpiece of the sculpture and is designed to simulate a dimensional vortex. Inside the core, visitors can look into a multisensory immersive world filled with visuals, light effects and soundscapes. The Infinity Mirror is composed of over one thousand LED panels, each one programmed to create a different image of the Jewel from any perspective. The Vortex is made up of 6,500 rotating LED panels that create a mesmerizing swirl of patterns. Lastly, the petals are 3D printed aluminum ‘scales’ that react to human presence with sound and light.
