Introducing “The Perpetual Pulse,” a mesmerizing contemporary art piece by Frank Bueltge that explores the cosmic cycle of life and death. It consists of a massive circular installation suspended from the ceiling, with thousands of tiny, twinkling lights that move rhythmically to an ethereal soundscape. When viewed from afar, it resembles the swirling, pulsating galaxies of the universe.
As viewers approach the installation, they realize that the lights are actually individual cells representing the cells in the human body, ebbing and flowing in a perpetual cycle of growth and decay. The soundscape is composed of the murmurs, breaths and heartbeats of different people, creating a symphony of human experiences that highlights our shared mortality and interconnectedness.
This new masterpiece by Frank Bueltge draws inspiration from the scientific theory of Quantum Entanglement, which argues that particles can become mysteriously and inextricably linked, regardless of distance, creating a web of cosmic connections. Bueltge’s artwork invokes this idea of entanglement, using light and sound to weave together the diverse experiences and emotions of humanity. “The Perpetual Pulse” is now on display at the Tate Modern in London, and is a must-see for contemporary art enthusiasts.
Frank Bueltge’s previous piece, “Fragmented Memories” is also a must-see. Check it out here.
