这是一个游戏性质的户外活动装置。

在城市里的一点点神奇感令人开心。

 

空间

距离北京天安门2公里的前门北京坊商业街区中庭。置身于只向天空开放的人造建筑空间时,我们本能的感受到自在的召唤——天空、无处不在的空气,解除束缚的出口。

 

时间

活动日,常常没有一场室外活动会期盼雨。

 

规则

干冰,-78.5℃固态的二氧化碳置于常温下,使空气中的水遇冷凝结成微小水珠,形成可见的“雾”。

 

显现

装置兼容活动当日可能的各种天气。晴天温度高、雾渐浓,阴天湿度大、雾浓厚,雨天直接触水、烟雾汹涌喷薄。

 

执行

1、将柔软的钢丝绳与两端高空临时构筑物相连。

2、多个装满干冰颗粒的网状结构均匀紧锁固定在钢丝绳上。

3、有限数量的干冰于阴天常温2小时内自然消失。

 

内部

凌晨的内部测试,没有人群、没有观众、没有安保围挡,执行团队的每一个个体在城中心的深层静谧中,触及暗夜、雾气和温度,触及静止、变换腾起,触及消失,触及隐秘。

 

回望

iCloud裹挟着xiān氙建筑有限的智识与虔诚的意识信息,从人的日常尺度发出信号:客观存在的物质和宇宙自然环境,时刻与人类共存,我们视为一场游戏规模的关联仪式。

/ art installation

 

This is a game-like outdoor installation.

It creates a bit of magic in the city that delights people.

 

Space

The installation is located in the central courtyard of Beijing Fun at Qianmen, two kilometers away from Tian’anmen Square in Beijing. Standing within this man-made space and facing the sky, one would instinctively feel an internal calling, from the sky, the omnipresent air, and exit of shackles.

Time

Normally on the day of an event, no outdoor event would welcome a rain.

Even this time we expect it to exist moreover for rain .

Law

Putting dry ice, the solid carbon dioxide at the temperature of -78.5℃ under room temperature, water in air would condense into tiny water droplets, forming a visible ‘fog’.

 

Appearance

The installation is compatible with all possible weather on the day of the event. On a sunny day when the temperature is high, the fog would be heavy. On a cloudy day when the air moisture is high, the fog would be thick. While on a rainy day, when the fog hits water, it would be smoggy.

 

Execution

1. Tie the soft steel cables to the two temporal structures in air at both sides.

2. Tie multiple reticular structures containing dry ice particles evenly on the steel cables.

3. A limited number of dry ice would sublimate in two hours on a cloudy day with normal temperature.

 

Internal

In the internal test in early morning, there is no crowd, no audience, no security enclosure. Every individual of the executive team was in the deep silence of the center of the city, touching the dark night, the fog and the temperature, touching the stillness, the change, the disappearance, and eventually privacy.

 

Retrospective

iCloud incorporates the limited intelligence and pious consciousness of Xian architects. It sends a signal from the daily scale of human beings, that the objective existence of matter and the cosmos environment coexist with human beings, and we regard it as a association ritual at the scale of a game.
