This imaginative work of public art transforms four vintage bells into a metal art tower sculpture appropriately called “Tempus Fugit” (Time Flies).
The sleek white tower encases and protects the antique bells while also showcasing them as intriguing focal points. As the bells chime in unison, they convey a poetic message about the passage of time.
Incorporating metal, sound, and kinetic energy, this metal art bell tower creates an engaging experience for passersby. The four aged bells become characters that together tell an abstract story through their synchronized chiming. This sculpture turns a utilitarian structure into a work of art.
The bells are framed by the tower yet remain visible through cutouts in the exterior. During the day, the rusted patina of the bells contrasts beautifully with the smooth white tower. At night, the bells can be illuminated to add drama. This innovative design is highly functional public art.
The Artistic Genesis
Conceived by the visionary Portuguese sculptor Juanjo Novella, this 14.5-meter steel artwork is illuminated by WE-EF’s ETV120-TW adjustable white wall lights. The steel sculpture, adorned with antique clocks, bears the word “TIME” in various languages, symbolizing the inexorable passage of time.
