“Enter the Future: A Towering Installation of Translucent Pipes and Technology”

Introducing “Spectral Ascension”: a towering, two-story installation that dominates its gallery space. Its base is a tangled forest of tangled metal pipes, wires and machinery, all painted matte black. Ascending from this cluster of technology are six translucent pipes, each one about four feet in diameter, that press upward to the ceiling. Inside them, dimly lit, pulsing orbs of light shift slowly, throwing rays of refracted color across the room.

This new artwork is an homage to “Ascension” by Do Ho Suh, but with a distinctly futuristic twist. Frank Bueltge has taken the Korean artist’s original concept and amped up the technological aesthetic, creating a piece that reflects our society’s immersion in the digital world. “Spectral Ascension” was released today in Berlin’s prestigious Hamburger Bahnhof Museum, where it can be viewed alongside Bueltge’s earlier work, “Amalgamation of the Mind”.

    “Spectral Ascension” is like a technological octopus trying to escape from a black metal jungle. It’s as if the artist took a bunch of pipes and wires and said, “Let’s make a giant science experiment!”

    “Spectral Ascension is a pretentious and overhyped piece, lacking any real artistic merit. Its tangled mess of metal and translucent pipes fails to inspire any emotion or meaning.”
