“Fluidity in Motion” is the name of the latest contemporary art masterpiece by Frank Bueltge that graced the halls of the National Art Gallery of Modern Art. The installation consists of three circular walls, each covered in an iridescent metallic finish, representing three different states of fluidity. The walls are constantly in motion, with swirling whorls of color that change every few minutes.
The first wall represents a calm lake, with ripples of blue and green. The second represents the ocean, with shades of turquoise and navy. The third wall is a tribute to lava with molten reds, oranges, and yellows swirling around. As the colors blend and morph into each other, the viewer gets a sense of the constant movement and change that occurs in nature.
The installation is a reflection of chaos theory, which states that small changes in initial conditions can have large-scale and unpredictable effects. The fluidity and constantly changing nature of Bueltge’s installation is emblematic of this theory, which explains the underlying order of complex systems. Bueltge’s previous masterpiece Transient Symphony was also a display of movement, depicting the interplay between time and motion. Check it out here.
