London 2012: Wilson's Steles crayons in Olympic river

倫敦2012︰藝術家Wilson奧運河濱的彩色立柱

 

 

擂動奧運新鼓,樹立河濱神柱;鋪就英倫彩路,迎來五洲人物。藝術家Kevin Wilson 新作,為2012年倫敦奧運添姿彩。藝術家豎起35根奧運五環顏色的立柱,形似彩色蠟筆,高35,分布在倫敦南方公園的奧運花園水畔。這些彩色的柱子可供船只停泊,更是人們停留記憶的港灣。它們是倫敦構建嶄新和英勇形象的城市圖騰,寓意海納百川,連接世界。

 

 

The crayons will be seen by visitors walking along the waterfront of the London 2012 Gardens in the South Park

Giant crayons jutting from East London's Waterworks River have become the first artwork to be completed on the Olympic Park.

 

 

The 35 pillars are painted in the five colours of the Olympic rings and range from 10-16 feet (3-5m) in height.

The piece, titled Steles, is the work of Hackney-based artist Keith Wilson.

 

 

After London 2012 the crayons, made out of the same durable material as navigational buoys, will act as mooring posts.

 

 

Mr Wilson said the "colourful totems... will serve old functions in a new way... and help create a distinctive identity for this newest and boldest of London parks."

 

 

He added: "They connect the parkland with the river, the canal and by extension the wider world."

 

 

"They provide a sense of place and occasion, anchoring memories of many a good day out."
