Changi Airport introduces new interactive installations

Designed to engage, excite and encourage visitors to explore Singapore

Passengers at Changi Airport can now enjoy new interactive installations and visual treats across its three terminals.

The highlight of the new spaces is a contemporary digital wall designed to boost interaction with the use of motion-sensing technology.

Located next to the Skytrain station near the F gates, the LED ‘Dots Portrait Wall’ allows passengers to bring home monochromatic portraits of themselves at different spots of Singapore, without having to step out of Changi Airport.

How it works

  • When a passenger stands in front of the wall, motion is detected and the option to take a portrait is offered.
  • Next, the passenger picks a backdrop and the portrait is superimposed on it. Iconic background options include Gardens by the Bay, Merlion Park as well as Changi Airport’s control tower and Kinetic Rain art installation.
  • The entire creation then appears on the screen in a black and white flip-dot display, which can be sent to friends and family over email.

On the other side of the interactive screen is a ‘Motion Silhouette Wall’, which responds to movements in real time. Adopting the same motion-sensing technology, backdrops and patterns change as passengers in front of the wall move and interact with the animation.

Photo spots featuring well-loved Singapore icons

Across the terminals within the public and transit areas, passengers are treated to other interesting photo opportunities.

Departing passengers and airport visitors can also explore lively photo spots at Changi Airport showcasing Singapore’s colourful culture and unique attractions.

The photo spots come with realistic murals, complete with interactive elements such as a boat ride along the perimeter of the River Safari. The memorable Changi trishaw makes a return to Terminal 1 (T1), this time against the cultural precincts of Chinatown and Joo Chiat.

These 3-D backdrops provide visitors with the perfect ‘instagrammable’ moment, making them wonderful souvenirs as they wrap up their visit to Singapore and Changi Airport.

Mr Bernard Siew, CAG’s Vice President of Experience Creation:

“We are excited to introduce to our visitors these interactive experiences at Changi Airport. These new variations are designed to engage their senses and create pleasant memories of their visit to Singapore and Changi Airport. To capture greater mindshare among tourists to this region, CAG and STB continue to work together to constantly refresh and promote the Singapore experience. We look forward to offering even more unique concepts to delight our travellers.”

Ms Jacqueline Ng, Director, Marketing Partnerships & Planning, STB:

“Changi Airport is an integral part of the Singapore experience and a perfect place for visitors to learn more about the breadth and depth of offerings they can enjoy in Singapore. We hope that these new installations will both inspire and entertain, and help to start and end a visit to Singapore in a more memorable way. We will continue working with our industry partners to find new and innovative ways to amplify the Singapore experience.”
