Guggenheim Building Mobile

Guggenheim Building Mobile

This mobile is developed in co-operation with the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

From his home in Denmark, mobile artist Ole Flensted worked to create his interpretation of the Guggenheim and the New York skyline. He sees the Guggenheim as “a spiraling pearl nestled amongst the skyscraper-high buildings."

Like the actual architecture, the new mobile is spectacular in its simplicity, contrasting Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1959 spiral with the rectangular shapes of its 1992 annex and the surrounding skyscrapers.

The natural movement of the mobile allows the light, seen through the tens of tiny windows in each of the buildings, to change in a similar way to the building itself, which ingeniously used its circular structure to allow sunlight to filter through and reflect light naturally: a wonderful way to view art!
