“自拍熊猫”是一件巨型艺术品,它长26米,宽13米,高13米,重达130吨,还能与公众“自拍”互动。该作品隐含了艺术家对自拍文化的评论,也反映了本地为保护珍稀物种所付出的努力。

Selfie Panda is a colossal artwork at 26m long, 13m wide and 13m high, offering the interactive capability to takes ‘selfies’ with the public. The work is a direct reference to the ongoing conservation efforts to protect the species by creating a clever social commentary, offering large scale community engagement and attracting global attention.

UAP从该项目之初就与客户合作,从确定策展服务,到概念方案和深化设计,直至艺术品制作与安装落成。“自拍熊猫”由超过300万根漆面不锈钢丝固定而成,这些不锈钢丝虽然很硬,但在视觉上却如绒毛般柔软,邀请人们前来抚摸。它手握自拍杆,将嵌入摄像头的巨型LED屏幕模拟成一部智能手机,期待着公众能通过扫描定制互动小程序与其互动自拍。

UAP was engaged by the client from the onset of this project, developing a curatorial scope followed by the design, engineering, fabrication and installation of the work. Over 3 million strands of painted wire were screwed into the perforated aluminium body of the sculpture to create a tactile and weatherproof fur coat. The selfie stick showcases a large programmed LED screen with a camera embedded into it, emulating a real phone. Visitors are encouraged to take selfies via a custom developed mobile application.
