London 2012: Wilson's Steles crayons in Olympic river

伦敦2012:艺术家 Wilson 奥运河滨的彩色立柱

 

擂动奥运新鼓,树立河滨神柱;铺就英伦彩路,迎来五洲人物。艺术家 Kevin Wilson 新作,为2012年伦敦奥运添姿彩。艺术家竖起35根奥运五环颜色的立柱,形似彩色蜡笔,高35,分布在伦敦南方公园的奥运花园水畔。这些彩色的柱子可供船只停泊,更是人们停留记忆的港湾。它们是伦敦构建崭新和英勇形象的城市图腾,寓意海纳百川,连接世界。

 

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."
