艾克曼工作室创始人,艺术家珍妮特·艾克曼应邀在2013年为三年一度的GLOW圣莫尼卡海滩艺术展示盛会设计创造的这一极具飘逸视觉美感的顶蓬雕塑临时性艺术装置,渲染着暮色中的海滩。从日落到日出,整个海滩通宵沉浸于冥想的艺术氛围,人们在这里驻足、沉思,在光影闪烁中感悟人生。
 
2013年9月28日夜晚,艾克曼的特色空中艺术雕塑“冥想天地间”在土方围塑起的这片海滩空间中格外绚丽夺目,超过15万人参加了此次海滩艺术展示盛会,因而成为了美国规模最大的公众艺术盛会之一。在次日早晨纽约时报刊载的一篇关于此次活动的报道中,曾提及艾克曼这一巧夺天工的艺术作品,称赞其“赋予手工艺极尽酷炫的视觉之美”。
 
艾克曼的这一独创性作品,充分利用各类实验性元素,包括海滩地面上围塑而起的土方空间以及同步控制作品灯光效果的音频设施。艾克曼和她的设计团队与城市公共工程部门的相关工作人员取得通力协作,堆塑出一系列沙石土方,以在艺术顶蓬雕塑之下围合出相应的活动空间,让参与活动的公众们都能够身临其境,近距离地仰望顶蓬雕塑在夜空下的曼妙多彩。
 
艾克曼本人将该作品的创作视为艺术创新的一种衍生与突破。“海滩是人类社会与神奇大自然之间的媒介,”她说道,“我乐于用艺术来塑造大地和天空,并将我们人类置于天与地之间,去感觉其中的无穷奥妙。当我们脚踏沙石,寻觅空中、水中的那份飘渺之时,沉重与轻盈便在我们周遭碰撞开去。”“在这一作品中,我的创作目标是为人们营造一处短暂的无言感官体验空间,以唤起脑海中与记忆里的片刻沉思。”
 
活动主办方认为,在圣莫尼卡文化事务部和圣莫尼卡艺术基金会的联合打造下,当晚的活动“颠覆了公众对于艺术的固有认知,冥思与愉悦在夜色中的光影世界里相互碰撞着,激荡出炫目的艺彩。”

Janet Echelman was commissioned to create the headlining sculpture for GLOW 2013, the triennial art event for site-specific works on Santa Monica Beach. Lasting only one night – from dusk to dawn – the beach is transformed into a “playground for thoughtful and participatory, temporary art.”
 
On the night of September 28, 2013, more than 150,000 people attended GLOW and participated in sculpting the earthwork beneath Echelman’s aerial sculpture, “The Space between Us,” making it one of the largest public art events in the U.S. In an article published the morning after the event, The New York Times credited Echelman’s work for “giving crafts a coolly conceptual edge.”
 
Echelman’s ground-breaking work utilized experimental elements, including shaped earth and an audio component that synced to a pulsating lighting program. The artist and her team collaborated with City Public Works staff to create carved sand indentations for visitors to enter and gaze up at the aerial sculpture, becoming a part of the immersive experience.
 
Echelman views this commission as a point of growth and departure. “The beach is the charged zone between human society and uncontrolled nature,” she said. “I’m interested in sculpting earth and sky, and placing ourselves in between. It’s the collision of heaviness and lightness, between our gravity-bound bodies which walk on sand, and the part of us which seeks to float in air, or in water.” “My goal was to invite people to have an ephemeral sensory experience without words – a moment of contemplation that can evoke preverbal memory and engage our Limbic brain.”
 
Produced by the Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division and the Santa Monica Arts Foundation, the goal of the evening was to “break through the public’s preconceived notion of what art can be, encouraging both thoughtful contemplation and energetic participation,” said GLOW organizers.
