非常感谢 John Gerrard 予gooood分享以下内容。Appreciation towards John Gerrard for providing the following description:

Lucas Gusher是世界上第一个大型油田,它发掘于1901年,如今已被荒废变得贫瘠。Western Flag正是描述了这样一种景象。设计师还原了当时的场景,将一盏旗杆树立于场地之中,袅袅尘烟于旗杆中奔涌而出,仿佛迎风飘扬的旗帜。设计师将画面带回到城市中来,在显示屏下的旗帜跟随日夜交替,季节变化而永无休止的飘扬着,黑烟在空气中舞动。

“20世纪留给我们的不止是人口的急剧增长与更好的生活水平,还有大量的二氧化碳排放。我希望人们可以看到这面‘旗帜’,希望人们可以看到这些无形的二氧化碳给我们带来了什么。”——John Gerrard

Western Flag (Spindletop, Texas) 2017 depicts the site of the ‘Lucas Gusher’ – the world’s first major oil find in Spindletop, Texas in 1901, now barren and exhausted. Gerrard has recreated the site as a digital simulation and placed at its centre a flagpole bearing a flag of perpetually-renewing pressurised black smoke. The computer generated Spindletop runs in exact parallel with the real site in Texas throughout the year: the sun rising at the appropriate times and the days getting longer and shorter according to the seasons. The simulation is non-durational (having no beginning or end) and is run live by software that is calculating each frame of the animation in real time as it is needed.

“One of the greatest legacies of the 20th century is not just population explosion or better living standards but vastly raised carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. A new flag attempts to give this invisible gas, this international risk, an image, a way to represent itself. I like to think of it as a flag for a new kind of world order.” John Gerrard
