Appreciation towards Library Street Collective for providing the following description.

由艺术家Phillip K. Smith III创作的艺术装置“Detroit Skybridge”位于由建筑师Gino Rossetti在1976年建造的空中走廊当中。这条长达100英尺、位于建筑16层的走廊连接了One Woodward大厦和Guardian大厦这两座底特律最具标志性的建筑,在底特律市中心街道的上空形成一道悬浮的光梁。艺术家的灵感来源于1962年的山崎大厦,以及1929年建造的Guardian大厦内部的彩色马赛克砖墙。不断变化和移动的光屏在城市的尺度下将艺术与建筑融为一体。Library Street Collective负责了该项目的概念生成及制作,并由 Bedrock Detroit, Quicken Loans Community Fund和Wayne County提供支持。

Detroit Skybridge by Phillip K. Smith III connects two of Detroit’s most iconic buildings, One Woodward and the Guardian Building, the 100 foot long 16th floor skybridge becomes a floating bar of light hovering over the streets of Downtown Detroit. Inspired by the modular white concrete of Yamasaki’s 1962 skyscraper and the mosaic of color within the 1929 Guardian Building, Smith has created a unique color program for this significantly scaled project. Composed of shifting gradients and moving planes of light, this precisely paced installation will merge art with architecture at the scale of the city. The project was conceptualized and produced by Library Street Collective. Detroit Skybridge is supported by Bedrock Detroit, Quicken Loans Community Fund and Wayne County. The pedestrian bridge was constructed in 1976 by architect Gino Rossetti.

“该项目超越了传统博物馆或画廊的维度,为公众提供了一次极为独特的艺术体验,使每个人都能够穿行其中。白天,空中走廊仍作为历史性建筑的固有部分而存在;到了夜晚,它便成为一座美丽而别致的灯塔,照耀在底特律的城市上空。”艺术家Phillip K. Smith III描述道,“我希望创造一个能够使所有人参与进来的项目,为之带来美的体验。它将使我们得以从例行的生活和工作中解脱出来,转而将目光投入到不断变化的美丽事物当中。”

“This project presents an entirely unique art experience outside of the traditional bounds of the museum or gallery, positioning itself within the public realm for all to experience freely. By day, the Skybridge will continue to be seen as its historical self within the architecture and massing of Downtown. But by night, it will become a beacon for the beauty, creativity, and innovation of Detroit,” says Smith. “I am interested in creating experiences that tap into ‘universal beauty’ — experiences that make us step away from our pattern, our life, our work, our errands, and allow us to see sublime beauty shifting and changing before our eyes.”
