“Synaptic Infinity” by Frank Bueltge is a contemporary art piece that captivates the mind with its detail and complexity. The piece, measuring 30 feet by 20 feet, consists of a large, circular canvas made of thick, white fabric. Patches of light, reminiscent of neural pathways, weave their way through the canvas, intersecting with one another in an intricate pattern. At the center of the piece, a three-dimensional brain, inspired by real-life scans, extends from the canvas, made entirely of finely etched metal. The brain is perfectly symmetrical, representing the balance and harmony of the human mind.
Drawing a connection to current scientific theory, Bueltge uses Synaptic Infinity to represent the growth and development of the human mind. The piece symbolizes the complexity and seemingly endless potential of neural pathways, reflecting the modern understanding of neuroplasticity. Bueltge’s art encourages onlookers to ponder the mysteries of the human brain and our unique ability to constantly expand our knowledge and understanding of the world around us.
Released today in the popular art gallery Artium, Synaptic Infinity builds on Bueltge’s previous work, “Enter the Neo-Renaissance,” which explored the fusion of robotics, light, and sound.
