随着圣彼得堡26英亩海滨码头的开放,Janet Echelman揭幕了其最新的永久装置作品——弯曲的弧线。这座空中雕塑由1,662,528个绳结与180英里的绳索组成,总长达424英尺,最高点可达72英尺。

With the opening of St. Petersburg’s new 26-acre waterfront Pier, Janet Echelman unveils her newest permanent work, Bending Arc. Composed of 1,662,528 knots and 180 miles of twine, the aerial sculpture spans 424 feet and measures 72 feet at its tallest point.

这位国际知名的艺术家在坦帕湾(Tampa Bay)海岸出生长大,该作品的灵感来源于一张颇具年代感的明信片。明信片上描绘了蓝白条纹的沙滩遮阳伞与码头暗处特有的藤壶。从空中鸟瞰,雕塑像是三个依偎在一起的藤壶形状的太阳伞。

The internationally-renowned artist, born and raised along the shores of Tampa Bay, was inspired by historical postcards depicting blue and white striped beach parasols together with the geometric forms made by colonies of barnacles growing on the underside of the pier itself. The sculpture’s design in aerial view can be read as three barnacle-like parasols nestled together.

作为公私合营的项目,该纤维雕塑由私人捐助者出资,而其相关的基础设施与公园建设则被纳入9200万美元的 Pier District 市政规划项目中。这座巨大的雕塑完全由轻质纤维制成,可承受150 mph的风速,桅杆的最大承受力可达65吨。绳索由纤维编织而成,强度是钢的15倍。这种材料也被NASA用于系链火星探测车。平面上,该雕塑的网面覆盖了47,500平方英尺。 网和绳索共重5,330磅。

A public-private partnership, the fiber sculpture was funded entirely by private donors, and the cost of its related infrastructure and park was covered within the city’s $92 million Pier District project. Made entirely of lightweight fiber, the monumental sculpture is engineered to withstand 150 mph winds, and the maximum force applied to its masts is 65 tons. The rope is made of a fiber 15 times stronger than steel by weight and was used by NASA to tether the Mars Rover. The net in plan covers 47,500 square feet. The net and ropes weigh a total of 5,330 pounds.

Echelman的艺术理念是拥抱变化。这座巨大的雕塑在码头上方轻轻摇曳。风给雕塑柔软的表面塑造了多变的造型,宛若舞蹈。雕塑的颜色也会随着自然光与人工照明的变化而变化。白天,雕塑在公园的地面和游人身上投下阴影,晚上,则变成红色与紫色交织的灯光装置。

Echelman’s art embraces change. The monumental sculpture gently billows above the Pier District, allowing the wind to create a choreography of constantly changing shape in the sculpture’s soft surface. The sculpture’s color also transforms at every moment while its surface interplays with natural and projected light. In daytime the sculpture casts shadow drawings on the park and people below, and at night it transforms into a glowing beacon of magenta and violet light.

在深化创作的过程中,Echelman逐渐意识到该场地在民权运动中的重要意义。当地市民和平挑战民族壁垒,推动1957年美国最高法院做出裁决,保证所有人平等地享有使用市政海滩和游泳池的权利。雕塑的几何形态由多重弧线组成,在风中轻轻摇曳。艺术家将其命名为“弯曲的弧线”,取自马丁·路德·金的一句名言:“道德宇宙的发展弧线或许很长,但它会向正义弯曲。”

As she continued her design process, she learned of the site’s important Civil Rights Movement significance, as the place where local citizens began peacefully challenging racial barriers, leading to the 1957 US Supreme Court case ruling which upheld the rights of all citizens to enjoy use of the municipal beach and swimming pool without discrimination. The sculpture’s geometry in section is composed of multiple arcs, which gently billow in the wind. The artist titled the sculpture Bending Arc in reference to MLK’s words: “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Echelman的艺术装置为游人提供了一片绿洲,在这里,人们可以享有片刻的宁静,感受与自然宇宙的联系。“天空就是我艺术品的画布” Echelman说道,“由于这件艺术品在室外,被安置在新鲜的空气中,在疫情期间,它为人们提供了一个真实且安全的共享之地。”

Echelman’s artwork offers visitors an oasis where they can seek a moment of calm sensory experience and heightened awareness of nature and our place within it. “The sky is the canvas for my artwork,” says Echelman, “and because this art is outside in the fresh air. During this pandemic, it offers a place for people to share an authentic experience while staying safe.”
