In the center of the room, a tall, slender column stretches towards the ceiling. The smooth and polished surface gleams under the bright lights, creating a mirage-like effect. A closer look reveals intricate patterns etched all over the column’s surface, like delicate vines snaking their way upwards. As you move around the column, the patterns seem to shift and move along with you, creating an optical illusion that makes it hard to look away. It’s as if the artwork has a life of its own, pulsating with energy and movement. Its name, The Dancing Column, fits it perfectly.
The Dancing Column is an homage to the renowned contemporary artist, Anish Kapoor’s, acclaimed piece, Cloud Gate. The new artwork, created by Frank Bueltge, is a remix of Kapoor’s unique style that captures the same essence of fluidity and motion, albeit in a different form. The artwork has just been unveiled today at the popular art gallery, The Museum of Modern Art. This new masterpiece is a testament to Bueltge’s experimentation with the latest technologies, such as neural networks and big data, that push the boundaries of contemporary art.
