该项目位于波特兰Oregon动物园的教育中心前的Discovery广场上,设计师在这里安装了名为Ambiguous的艺术装置。该公共艺术品表达了教育中心的主题“小事物的重要性”,即强调小部分对整体的贡献。

Ambiguous was installed in Discovery Plaza, in front of the Education Center of Oregon Zoo, Portland. The conceptual approach for this public artwork is based on the Education Center’s interpretive theme that “small things matter,” particularly how many small parts contribute to a whole.

设计师Rob Ley创作了一个由数百个小蝴蝶结组成的雕塑,这些设计元素都具有独特的弯曲角度,并通过铆钉组合成最终的整体形态。此作品的一部分设计灵感来源于生物的最初形态,如种子、孢子、卵和花粉,他们都具有迷人的构造和纹理特征,这些特征都是每个物种所独有的,相互比较时则显得相似。设计师最终为游览者打造出一个可以远观整体形态,近品小部件独特结构的大型雕塑。

Rob Ley created a sculpture composed of hundreds of small bow-tie shaped elements with unique-angled bends and rivets that turn the separate pieces into a singular, monolithic form.This piece takes inspiration from the similarities seen when studying various forms that mark the beginning of life. Seeds, spores, eggs and pollen exhibit fascinating tectonic and textural qualities which are unique to the species, yet ambiguous when compared to one another. As a result, the sculpture may be understood both as a large form when seen from a distance, as well as an assembly of many small parts working together when viewed up close.
