“融冰”是一个浸入式环境,可供人们思考和讨论全球气候变化问题。Studio Gang与施华洛世奇及备受赞誉的电影制片人兼摄影师詹姆斯·巴罗格合作,将该装置设想为一个电影镜头,并配以具有光学特性的诱人施华洛世奇水晶及巴罗格拍摄的超群而警醒的冰川融化照片,从而使访客意识到采取环境行动的迫切需求。
 
冰是最短暂的晶体,对温度、风及蒸发作用的变动极为敏感。冰融化的时候,会失去多晶结构,但仍具有令人叹为观止的形态。从带有融水冰蚀洞的极地冰盖之复杂图案到后退冰川的巨大裂缝,巴罗格在记录全球融冰遗迹的过程中,捕捉到了各种鬼斧神差的形状。巴罗格的照片虽然透露着一种空灵的美感,但也凸显了一种令人不安的现实。
 
矿物材料多采自地下,需付出巨大的环境及人工代价,而施华洛世奇水晶却不同,它们通过可持续设计而成,物质性丰富,具有较低的环境足迹,可引发全球众多行业所需的范式转移,从而解决架构巴罗格作品的人为现象问题。
 
“融冰”将阿尔卑斯山和极地地区发现的这些稍纵即逝的形状带到了身处亚热带的迈阿密——深受极端气候现象影响的滨水城市之一。该装置的冰川结构形成了一个中心布景,促使人们就全球变暖这一关键问题展开对话。从未经处理的碎片到精心雕琢的组件,“融冰”上镶嵌了各式各样的施华洛世奇水晶,其结构上的孔洞仿造出了令人震撼而不安的融冰形态。巴罗格拍摄的照片进行了全景复制,虽然主题稍显沉重,但仍构成了一处私密空间。该装置的形状及意象尤为引人注目,促使观众反思冰川融化问题并讨论全球气候变化的影响及解决方案。

Thinning Ice is an immersive environment for contemplation and conversation about the world's changing climate. In collaboration with Swarovski and award-winning filmmaker and photographer James Balog, Studio Gang envisioned the installation as a lens, deploying the seductive, optical properties of Swarovski crystal and Balog’s sublime yet sobering images of glacial melt to focus visitors’ attention on the urgent need for environmental action.
 
Sensitive to shifts in temperature, wind, and evaporation, ice is the most temporary of crystals. Upon melting, ice loses its polycrystalline structure, yet it also assumes surprising, breathtaking formations. In documenting the vestiges of the world’s melting ice, Balog captures these otherworldly forms—from the intricate patterns of polar ice sheets perforated with meltwater thaw holes to the vast crevasses in receding glaciers. Despite their ethereal beauty, however, Balog’s images underscore a discomforting reality.
 
Unlike mined materials, which are extracted from the earth at considerable environmental and human cost, Swarovski crystal is sustainably engineered. Its opulent materiality yet comparatively low environmental footprint evokes the kind of paradigm shifts that are required of many industries worldwide in order to address the human-made phenomenon underpinning Balog’s work.
 
Thinning Ice brings these fleeting forms found in the alpine and polar regions to subtropical Miami—one of many waterfront cities susceptible to extreme weather events. The installation’s glacial structures establish a central setting for dialogue on this critical issue. Embedded with a diverse selection of Swarovski crystal, from unprocessed fragments and shards to finely finished pieces, the structures’ voids echo the stunning and disturbing formations of melting ice. Reproduced in panoramic scale, Balog’s photographs define an intimate space despite the gravity of their subject matter. Together, the installation's captivating forms and imagery invite viewers to reflect on glacial melt and discuss the consequences of—and solutions to—the global climate crisis.
