世界知名藝術家及環境運動份子奧拉佛.艾里亞森(Olafur Eliasson)日前公佈了一項全新的文化地標,地點位於美國芝加哥的標誌性建築物——威利斯大廈(Willis Tower)。被稱為〈氣流之牆〉,這件新的文化地標是艾里亞森在芝加哥城的第一件公共裝置藝術作品。這也提供了人們能夠在戶外空間體驗藝術——非常適合需要保持社交距離的當下。

World-renowned artist and climate activist  Olafur Eliasson  has unveiled a new cultural landmark in  Chicago at the iconic Willis tower.  Dubbed  atmospheric wave wall, this new cultural landmark is Eliasson’ s first  public art  installation in the city, providing a free and accessible way to experience art outdoors — something that goes perfectly with our current socially-distanced times.

 

永久地展示在傑克森大道的戶外,艾里亞森的〈氣流之牆〉製造了一種張力十足的體驗:隨著街上行人的移動、太陽光影的轉變、甚至季節流轉、天氣變化都會創造出不同的風貌。由1963片藍色、深綠色及白色的曲面粉體塗層不鏽鋼片組合而成,這件裝置藝術品在白天捕捉陽光,起伏的曲面也製造出不同的觀賞體驗。而當天色暗下來後,作品則會被點亮,光線從鋼片的縫隙中流洩而出。

Prominently displayed on the exterior Jackson boulevard, atmospheric wave wall  by  Olafur Eliasson  creates a dynamic experience activated by the motion of passersby; by the motion of the earth in ration to the sun as light moves across it; and by changes in the season and weather.  Composed of curved, blue, deep green and white powder-coated steel tiles, the public artwork catches the sunlight and collects the shadows that shift as the day progresses. Once its dark, the piece is lit from behind, allowing flashes of light to escape through the interstices between the tiles.

 

「對我而言,能為威利斯大廈及芝加哥打造出一個獨一無二的作品是極大的榮幸。」艾里亞森說到,「創作的靈感來自密西根湖,當我觀察到無法預測的天氣是如何擾亂了原本平靜的水面——因此〈氣流之牆〉會根據觀者所處的位置以及時間產生出不同的樣貌。我們所見的一切都是來自於我們的個人想法,而了解到這點則是我們改變現實的第一步。」艾里亞森希望藉由這個作品,在人們心中種下一顆改變的種子,為當地社區建立共識打下基礎。

“It was a great pleasure for me to create a work of art specifically for Willis tower and for Chicago,” Olafur Eliasson comments. “Inspired by the unpredictable weather that I witnessed stirring up the surface of Lake Michigan, atmospheric wave wall appears to change according to your position and to the time of day and year. What we see depends on our point of view: understanding this is an important step toward realizing that we can change reality. It is my hope that this subtle intervention can make a positive contribution to the building and to the local community by reflecting the complex activity all around us, the invisible interactions and minute fluctuations that make up our shared public space.”
