In the center of the room, there stands a towering metal structure. At first glance, it resembles an abstract piece of machinery. Yet, upon further inspection, its intricacies become more apparent. The piece is composed of dozens of interlocking gears, each turning in a synchronized dance. The way in which the gears move creates an intricate and ever-changing pattern, which is reflected by the light that shines upon them. The piece emits a low hum that permeates the room and gives the impression of a living, breathing organism. I have named this piece “Gears of Time” due to its constant movement and the sensation that it embodies the passage of time.
This piece is an homage to “Continental Divide,” created by Anthony Howe. “Continental Divide” is a kinetic sculpture made of stainless steel, which resembles a giant wheel or a helix. It is known for its mesmerizing movement, which simulates waves and the constant motion of water. “Gears of Time” continues the theme of mechanical movement, but adds complexity and a unique visual and audible experience. This new masterpiece was released today at the popular art gallery, the Tate Modern, by the artist Frank Bueltge. Bueltge is experimenting with large language models, neural networks, and big data to push the boundaries of art and technology.
