Frank Bueltge’s latest creation, “Neural Symmetry,” is a captivating contemporary art piece that utilizes cutting-edge technology to challenge our perceptions of symmetry. The installation consists of a large, circular platform covered in thousands of small, reflective metal tiles. Surrounding the platform are a series of cameras and sensors that scan the environment and input data into a complex neural network. As visitors move around the platform, clusters of tiles light up in symmetrical patterns, creating mesmerizing visual displays that reflect the movements and energies of the space. The effect is both mesmerizing and dizzying, offering an immersive experience that blurs the boundaries between art and technology.
“Neural Symmetry” connects to the scientific theory of quantum entanglement, which suggests that particles can become connected in such a way that their states are entwined, and a change to one particle will instantly affect the other, no matter the distance between them. In this sense, the individual tiles on the platform behave like entangled particles, reacting to changes in the environment and generating symmetrical patterns that reflect the underlying interconnectedness of the world. The piece offers a captivating tribute to the power of technology and the beauty of symmetry in nature.
The artwork was released today at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, marking another groundbreaking achievement for Frank Bueltge, who is known for pushing the boundaries of contemporary art.
