该项目是艾克曼工作室创始人,艺术家珍妮特·艾克曼的又一空中雕塑作品,特为2012-2013年阿姆斯特丹灯光节设计,是此次灯光节的标志性艺术装置,总长达230英尺(约70米),装置支点安于阿姆斯特丹市政厅与阿姆斯特丹大剧院所在的宜必斯阿姆斯特丹酒店顶楼,并横跨于毗邻的阿姆斯特尔河上空。雕塑的原始织状物装置整体由一系列的软质材料制成,其中包括Spectra品牌纤维材料,其坚固度比钢质材料强15倍,这使得该装置在并无任何其它额外加固措施的情况下,可稳定依附于建筑体之上。在独特的灯效映衬与装点中,整个空中雕塑形成此起彼伏的灵活视觉,五彩缤纷的灯光照射产生鲜明的色彩对比,在阿姆斯特尔河面上掩映出若隐若现的朦胧倒影,在昼夜交替间营造出空灵般迷人的都市景致,尤其在夜空中,更将无形的“飘渺”之感演绎得惟妙惟肖。
 
这一原始织状物的设计灵感来源于地球各自然系统间的相互关联。艺术家珍妮特·艾克曼从美国国家航空和宇宙航行局及美国国家海洋和大气局查阅到了2010年智利大地震的相关调查资料,获悉智利因此次地震使得当天时间缩短1.26微秒,而整个织状物便是以艾克曼根据地震当日海啸波纹形成幅度所绘制的三维立体图案为原型进行制作的,这也是该作品得名的由来。
 
“在过去的四个世纪中,河流和运河一直是阿姆斯特丹城市生活的主体”,艾克曼说道,“因此,倒映于水中的各式光影汇聚到一起,便诞生了雕塑意象,赋予人们无尽遐想。凝望这一灵动而飘渺的空中雕塑,人们不禁放慢脚步,思索人类应以怎样的形式存在于地球这一硕大织物中。”
 
阿姆斯特丹灯光节策划者罗吉尔·海德,曾评论艾克曼的这一雕塑作品“赋予了公共空间丰富的内涵,简约之美蕴含其中,为人们的节庆欢聚营造出浓郁的艺术氛围。”该织状物艺术装置最初是为2010年的首届美洲双年展而制作的,展会期间悬挂于丹佛艺术博物馆上空;此后,又于2011年展出于澳大利亚的悉尼市政厅历史建筑前;而作为阿姆斯特丹1.26项目的实物载体,在荷兰的此次展出,是其在欧洲的首度相亮,此后还将在世界其他各洲陆续展出,以体现其“地球各自然系统间相互关联”的设计理念。

Janet Echelman’s 230-foot-long aerial sculpture was installed over the Amstel River from atop the Amsterdam Stopera, which houses the City Hall and Muziektheater. The sculpture is a made entirely of soft materials, including Spectra® fiber, a material 15 times stronger than steel by weight, which allows it to attach to existing architecture without extra reinforcement. A unique lighting program integrates an undulation of changing and contrasting colors, reflected on the water below. The sculpture becomes an ethereal form which transforms day to night, and in darkness appears to “float in thin air.”
 
The form and content of the artwork draws inspiration from the interconnectedness of Earth’s systems. The artist used laboratory data from NASA and NOAA on the effects of the 2010 Chile earthquake, and the resulting 1.26-microsecond shortening of the Earth’s day. The sculpture’s three-dimensional form is inspired by Echelman’s mapping of tsunami wave heights across an entire ocean. As the signature project of the 2012-2013 Amsterdam Light Festival, the artwork underscores global interdependence.
 
“In Amsterdam, the river and canals have been central to city life for the last four centuries,” said Echelman. “The light reflections on the water’s surface become a focus of the sculpture here, creating an opportunity for contemplation. The sculpture invites you to pause and consider how we’re knitted into a larger fabric.”
 
Rogier van der Heide, curator of the Amsterdam Light Festival, said Echelman’s sculpture “provided more meaning to public spaces, showed the beauty of simplicity, and – probably most importantly – brought people together.” The installation in the Netherlands was the European premiere of the 1.26 project, which has now been exhibited on three continents. It was originally suspended from the Denver Art Museum to commemorate the inaugural Biennial of the Americas in 2010. In 2011, it travelled to Australia, where it was suspended in front of Sydney’s historic Town Hall.
