丢勒的《忧郁I》创作于1514在艺术史上《忧郁I》画面中所呈现的元素符号以晦涩著称似乎暗含着许多引人遐想的难解之谜。

Dürer's "Melancholy I" was created in 1514. In the history of art, the symbol of the elements presented in the picture of "Depression I" is nicknamed, and it seems to contain many mysteries that are puzzling.

对于这个众所周知的答案金锋并不完全赞同至少在金锋看来至少是不完备的因为艺术家在同样的这个幻方中发现了全新的密码57

For this well-known "answer" Jin Feng does not fully agree, at least in Jin Feng's view is at least incomplete, because the artist found a new password 57 in the same magic square.

正是像这样对该幻方的解谜与猜测过程中金锋创作了这次展览作品就像他在幻方中灵光闪现的发现数字57一样他将此次作品及展览命名为《忧郁II》。

It is exactly this way that Jin Feng created this exhibition in the process of solving puzzles and guessing the magic square. Just like his discovery number 57 in the magic square, he named the work and exhibition as "melancholy". II".




关于丢勒幻方



梁进《丢勒的幻方》(中国科学报)

在这个数字幻方上的数字横竖加起来都是34,这是著名的斐波那契数列中的数字。而且对角线上元素的平方和或立方和等于非对角线上的元素平方和或立方和。幻方最下面一行中间的两个数字15和14正是这幅画创作的年代1514年,时年丢勒正好43岁,是34的镜像。这种直接将数学研究成果放在艺术品里真是神来一笔。




百度百科《丢勒铜版画忧郁》

而幻方的最下一行的中间两格,正好是1514,就是这幅铜版画的制作年代,也是丢勒的母亲去世的年代。

About Dürer Magic Square


Liang Jin, "The Magical Square of Dürer" (Journal of the Chinese Academy of Sciences)


The numbers on this digital magic square add up to 34, which is the number in the famous Fibonacci sequence. Moreover, the sum of squares or cubes of elements on the diagonal is equal to the sum of squares or cubes of elements on the off-diagonal. The two numbers 15 and 14 in the middle of the bottom line of the magic square are exactly the 1514 years of the creation of this painting. At the age of 43, Dürer is exactly 43 years old, which is a mirror image of 34. This kind of direct placement of mathematical research results in art is really a god.



Baidu Encyclopedia "Dürer Copper Prints Melancholy"


The middle two squares of the last line of the Magic Square are exactly 1514, which is the age of the production of this copperplate print, and the time when Dürer’s mother died.

关于57

艺术家金锋则在幻方中灵光乍现的找到了另一个数字57,而且构成57的组合方式多达19种。那么这个神秘的57有怎样的含义呢?金锋在他的《给丢勒的一封信》中提到:“假设你知道1528年你会离世,也就是说,你知道自己是57岁会死去,而且你把这些信息也设计在了你的幻方之中。那么,只有三个数字会以它特有的方式在幻方中不断出现,这就超越了别人只在34这个数字中来释读你的幻方了。这三个数字就是14(表示你在1514年之后还可以活14年),还有28(表示你是在1528年去世),再有就是57(表示你是在57岁<1471-1528>那年会离开人世)。而恰恰我在你的幻方中发现了57这个数字。”


About 57


The artist Jin Feng found another number 57 in the magic square, and there are as many as 19 combinations of 57. So what is the meaning of this mysterious 57? Jin Feng mentioned in his "A Letter to Dürer": "Assume that you know that you will die in 1528, that is, you know that you will die at the age of 57, and you have designed this information. In your magic square. Then, only three numbers will appear in the magic square in a way that is unique to them, which goes beyond others to interpret your magic square in the number 34. These three numbers are 14 (indicating that you can live for 14 years after 1514), there are 28 (indicating that you died in 1528), and then there is 57 (indicating that you were born at the age of 57 <1471-1528>) And just I found the number 57 in your magic square."

爱与不朽


但在发现了幻方新密码57后,却给金锋带来了更加困惑的问题:“你是怎么知道你在57岁那年会去世,而且把这个数字暗藏在你的幻方之中的呢?我是否可以猜想:你的“忧郁”首先是来自人类的大爱,其次是你自己的私爱,你用57这个数字与你母亲的死亡年份1514紧密地联系在一起,共存在同一个幻方之中,并以此而获得爱的不朽?”

——金锋《给丢勒的一封信》


Love and immortality


However, after discovering the new password of Magic Square 57, it brought a more confusing question to Jin Feng: "How do you know that you will die at the age of 57, and hide this number in your magic square? Can I guess: Your "melancholy" is first of all a great love from human beings, followed by your own private love. You use the number 57 to closely relate to your mother's death year 1514. In the magic square, and to get the immortality of love?"


- Jin Feng, "A Letter to Dürer"
