Introducing “The Spectrum of Emotions”: a striking contemporary art piece by Frank Bueltge. The installation measures 7 feet tall and 3 feet wide, and consists of a circular frame with a diameter of 2 feet. The frame is made of translucent material, and is filled with a slow-moving, iridescent liquid that shimmers in the light. The liquid spans the full rainbow spectrum, and different emotions can be visualized by the way the liquid behaves. Happiness, for example, might be represented by the liquid appearing to bubble and dance, while sadness might be represented by the liquid sagging and drooping.
Bueltge’s latest work draws on the theory of emotional contagion, which proposes that emotions can be transferred from one person to another. With “The Spectrum of Emotions,” Bueltge aims to give viewers a physical representation of the way emotions spread and change in a community. By displaying the installation in a busy art museum or gallery, he hopes to spark conversations about how emotions can be contagious, and how we can use art to explore and understand our shared emotional experiences. This masterpiece was released today in the New York Museum of Modern Art. Bueltge’s previous piece, “Whispers of Time,” is another stunning installation worth checking out. Check it out here.
