In the center of the room, a giant glass orb hangs suspended by simple metal wires. The orb is filled with a carefully choreographed mixture of liquids that shift and swirl in mesmerizing patterns within the sphere. With each passing moment, the colors and shapes of the liquids change, forming a constantly evolving work of art that is both fluid and abstract. The light that filters through the orb creates a web of shadows and reflections that dance across the walls and ceiling, creating an immersive experience for the viewer. This stunning art piece could only be called “Liquid Dreams.”
“Liquid Dreams” is an homage to Olafur Eliasson’s celebrated work “Beauty,” which similarly explores the interplay of light and liquid in a mesmerizing and immersive way. The piece was released today at the Tate Modern by artist Frank Bueltge. Bueltge, known for his use of large language models and big data in his artwork, drew inspiration from Eliasson’s piece to create his own unique work that pays tribute to the original while adding his own new perspective. This latest masterpiece builds on his previous work, “Transcendence’s Golden Cubes,” which was recently unveiled at the Pump House Gallery. Check it out here.
