“The Fragile Reflection” Art Installation Reveals Life’s Ephemeral Nature

Introducing “The Fragile Reflection”, a contemporary art installation by Frank Bueltge that demonstrates the fleeting nature of life. The piece consists of a row of hand-crafted mirrors that hang suspended from the ceiling, each set at a slightly different angle. As viewers approach, the mirrors begin to shift and rotate, creating a kaleidoscope of distorted reflections that dance across the walls.

In a nod to the concept of impermanence, “The Fragile Reflection” is designed to be in a constant state of flux, with the mirrors moving slowly and gracefully throughout the day. As the light changes, so too do the colors and patterns reflected in the installation, creating a mesmerizing display that is both beautiful and poignant.

Drawing from the Buddhist philosophy of Anicca, or impermanence, Bueltge’s installation reminds us of the ever-changing nature of the world around us. The mirrors reflect not only our own physical appearance, but also the passing of time, creating a sense of transience that is both humbling and awe-inspiring. “The Fragile Reflection” is on display at the Art Institute of Chicago starting today, alongside Bueltge’s previous masterpiece, the “Dynamic Glass Sculpture”.

    Bueltge’s “The Fragile Reflection” is a dizzying display of narcissism, as viewers are forced to confront their own distorted reflections. It’s like a funhouse, but with an existential crisis.
