Kelley Bell will return to light up the clock faces of Bromo Seltzer Tower this winter in a series of video projections from November 5th to December 12th. The public art spectacle is presented in partnership with the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts. Public opening Nov. 5 from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
The 17th floor of the Bromo Seltzer Tower is dominated by mammoth cast-iron clockworks: massive gears; a labyrinth of intersecting cranks, chains, and poles connecting the central workings to the hands of each of the clocks; and a series of old-fashioned-looking circuit boards. At first, the whole thing looks like something out of Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times—except it is decidedly no longer modern. As the sun shines through the four clock faces, the nearly motionless machinery casts distorted shadows across the floor. The atmosphere of the room is, in fact, more like the ominous expressionism of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.
