假如你最近有機會到此購物，甚至是路過，千萬不要錯過。 Kyle Bean的創作理念基於能量守恆定律——能量既不會憑空產生，也不會憑空消失，它只能從一種形式轉化為其他形式，或者從一個物體轉移到另一個物體，在轉化或轉移的過程中，能量的總量不變。
Currently showing in the windows at Selfridges in London is a set of sculptures by Kyle Bean, based on the scientific law of conservation of energy.
For a department store known for selling the newest in fashion, design and gadgets, Selfridges’ latest window display is something of a surprise. Suspended from giant weighing scales in the ‘Wonder room’ is a dismantled Honda Fireblade motorcycle, complete with dangling wires.
Bean has drawn on the scientific theory – which states that ‘matter cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed’ – to create five works for Selfridges. Each consists of a set of giant hanging scales on which two items are placed. One is an object in its original form, the other a transformed version of it. The scales then prove that the objects are still of equal weight, and thus still essentially the same.
Bean’s window displays at Selfridges will be on show until 1st September. The designer and his team installed the motorcycle parts as a live art performance.
