Space - "Drift" by Antony Gormley


One of the most impressive pieces can be found hovering over the atrium of Hotel Tower 1. It is possibly the first thing you see when you step into the hotel lobby.

Titled "Drift", this massive three-dimensional geometry piece was created by Briton master sculptor Antony Gormley, who also worked on the bronze statue installation in New York, titled Event Horizon.

This piece is so huge, it had to be fabricated off-site, broken down into eight "slices" and transported by special container to Marina Bay Sands. "Drift is a symbolic presence in the way humans actually use the space," said Mr Gormley.

Over 100 people worked on "Drift" over a period of one and a half years.
