由艺术家兼设计师兼活动家Sebastian Errazuriz最新设计的公共艺术装置“blu Marble”将于2019年3月13日在纽约展出。“blu Marble”是一个巨大的LED装置,高20英尺,描绘了地球在太空中的实时景象。无论是白天还是黑夜,公众们都可以看到这个构筑物,从而可以将自己置身于一个从未体验过的空间形式和尺度中,进而思考自己的存在。这个具有反思意义的项目为人们提供了一个新的视角,去思考自己在宇宙和空间中的存在形式,同时也有助于人类针对于现状,做出一些积极的改变。

New York, NY – March 7, 2019 – Artist, designer, and activist Sebastian Errazuriz will present his latest public artwork “blu Marble” in New York beginning March 13, 2019. blu Marble is a monumental, 20-foot, LED structure depicting a live stream of the Earth from space. Visible by day and night, blu Marble invites the public to consider their presence in a form and scale that was never experienced before. This contemplative work offers new perspective on our existence and hopes to help humanity make positive change.

“blu Marble提醒着我们:我们的存在是非常脆弱的。它从地球——宇宙中微小的一个空间的层面上去探讨我们存在的意义,让我们在有限的生存时间内,能够正确认识并呵护地球这个脆弱而美丽的星球,”Sebastian Errazuriz解释道。

“blu Marble is a reminder of our miraculously fragile existence. It places our very existence in perspective at a global level – as a tiny spec in space – beckoning us to live fully with an awareness and mindfulness of our limited time on this vulnerable and beautiful planet,” explains Sebastian Errazuriz.

这个具有开创性的项目将于3月13日在位于曼哈顿Ludlow街159号的一家名为Richard Taittinger的私人画廊进行展出。此外,blu Marble还将与邻近的新当代艺术博物馆进行合作,通过投影将地球的实时影像映照在博物馆顶层的外墙上,共同创造出一种灯光效果,改变曼哈顿的城市天际线,该活动仅限一天。这是一个定制的球形LED屏幕,它能够将地球在宇宙中的样子实时展现在LED屏上。为了达到这种效果,Sebastian的团队设计创造了一个机器人,通过这个机器人从美国国家航空航天局的人造卫星上将地球的实时影像下载下来,同时将这些影像融合进一个专门的软件中,按照时间顺序将这些影像缓慢地播放,从而构建出地球在宇宙中的“实况转播”。值得一提的是,人造卫星通常被用于检测和研究植被、臭氧含量水平、气溶胶、云、反射率等日常事物的变化,而这些新一代的卫星却还能为我们提供地球不断变化的实时影像。当人们路过这个blu Marble装置的时候,可以看到部分的球体屏幕是黑色的,零星地点缀着些许灯光,而有些地方确实明亮的,从而表现出地球上不同地理位置的日夜情况。

The groundbreaking project will be launched in Manhattan on March 13th, showcased at 159 Ludlow Street with a private launch at Richard Taittinger Gallery. For one night only, there will be a neighborhood display in cooperation with the New Museum, where blu Marble will transform the Manhattan skyline. The artwork features a custom-created LED screen that projects Earth in real time from space. To obtain this imagery, Sebastian’s team created a bot that scrapes live photographs from a NASA satellite and merges them in an exclusive software that generates a slow progression between still images to compose a live video of Earth as seen from space. Typically used to monitor and study daily variations of vegetation, ozone, aerosols, clouds, reflectivity, etc., these new-generation satellites allow the live stream of our ever-changing Earth. The audience passing by the installation at night sees a partially dark Earth with clusters of light and, in contrast, meteorological conditions during the day.

1969年,人类第一次踏上月球,而今年,2019年,正式人类成功登月的50周年。登月成功对于人类来说,是一个历史性的时刻,因为它改变了人类对极限和可能性的看法。三年后,当阿波罗17号执行最后一次月球任务时,机组人员拍摄了一组著名的名为“蓝色大理石(Blue Marble)”的照片,第一次向人们展示了地球在太空中的景象。最初的“蓝色大理石”图片是最广为流传的地球影像,当然也给人们留下了极为深刻的印象。因此,blu Marble便将地球的实时影像播放出来,并扩大了其尺度,以便向当年的照片致敬,同时也提高了人们的意识,从而积极地对看待地球,并时常反思。blu Marble项目由创新性的电子蒸汽公司Fontem Ventures赞助完成,该公司是美国首批电子蒸汽品牌的持有人之一。

2019 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first person walking on the moon. This historical moment shifted the human perspective on limitation and possibility. Three years later, as Apollo 17 was on its last lunar mission, the crew took the renowned picture “Blue Marble” showing the first image of the Earth from space. The original “Blue Marble” picture is the most widely reproduced image of the Earth, leaving us with a remarkable image frozen in time. blu Marble pays homage to the iconic picture by bringing it to life and substantially increasing its size to raise awareness to our need for perspective and introspection. blu Marble was made possible by the support of the innovative e-vapor company, Fontem Ventures, owner of one of the first US e-vapor brands.
