本项目为SpY事务所在2021Logroño国际建筑与设计节“Concéntrico 07”中展出的装置艺术中作品。一个直径15米的巨型黑色球体被安放在Logroño多式联运站入口顶棚的穹顶天窗中。

In “Blackout”, SpY proposes the installation of a black sphere with a diameter of 15mt to be located in the central oculus of the Logroño intermodal station for “Concéntrico 07” Logroño’s International Festival of Architecture and Design.

“oculus”(圆形天窗),从建筑起源来讲,具有窗户或采光通道的功能。“oculus”一词来源于拉丁语中的“ochulos”,译为“眼睛”,在新石器时代,宗教建筑中的圆形天窗象征着神对人类行为的时刻警惕与关注。从历史象征意义来讲,“oculus”是无所不在的众神观察人间的窗口,本作品则表达出了SpY的艺术家们对这种意象的反思。

The oculus in their architectural origin had the function of windows or as a passage of light. Etymologically, the word derives from the Latin expression “ochulos” which literally translates as “eye”. In the Neolithic period it was interpreted as a symbol of the gods’ constant vigilance and attention to the actions of human beings. With this intervention, SpY proposes a reflection through the historical symbolism of the oculus as a window of the gods’ omnipresent observation.

在科技飞速发展的当今时代,数字技术通过无数的“窗口”逐渐入侵到人们的生活之中,通过监视、算法观察以及大数据预测等逐渐建立起一种不受人类控制的秩序。如今的人类可能已经在无意识中处于被数字控制的状态,它参数化了我们的存在,并在逐渐改变着人与人之间的关系。

It creates a parallel at a time when the digital has gained full presence in our lives through technological windows, establishing itself by way of surveillance, algorithmic observation and a new predictive cybernetic order. A state of digital control that parameterizes our existence and which is gradually changing how we humans relate.

SpY试图用一个巨大的黑色球体堵住这个“窗口”,以阻挡所有视线与光线的进入。球体的体积超过了穹顶天窗的边缘,从车站以及城市不同角度都可以轻易看到,堪称一个引人注目的艺术装置作品。

With the installation of this large black sphere, SpY seeks to block the vision and entry of light by occupying the entire oculus perimeter. The volume of the sphere surpasses both sides of the domed ceiling, being observable from different viewpoints of the station and the city.

关于 Concéntrico 07
About Concéntrico 07

西班牙Logroño国际建筑与设计节“Concéntrico”,每年举办一次,旨在引导人们对城市与城市环境作出反思。通过一系列装置艺术作品、展览、会议、活动以及表演,引导观众与游客在城市中环游,使人们与场馆、广场、街道、庭院和日常生活中通常不引人注意的隐藏空间之间建立起联系。

Logroño International Festival of Architecture and Design Concéntrico is the Logroño (Spain) International Festival of Architecture and Design that annually proposes to reflect on the urban environment and the city. The Festival invites visitors to tour the city through installations, exhibitions, meetings, activities and performances that create a connection between the venues, squares, streets, courtyards and hidden spaces that usually go unnoticed in their daily lives.
