Art magic: Guy Bell and the levitating pyramid

Guy Bell will unveil his levitating pyramid sculpture in an exhibition at the Thea Foundation on Friday, Feb. 6. I visited Bell in the workshop of the Innovation Hub in North Little Rock last week to see him at work on the project, something he's been thinking about creating for some time and has finally achieved, thanks to help from the folks at the Hub, he said.

The electromagnetic sculpture (inspired by the Masonic icon — which we know as "The Eye of Providence" on our dollar bills) will have a special effect when unveiled: A camera hidden in the floating pyramid, below an eyeball that will be on one side of the floating section, will send images of viewers via a wireless transmitter in the base of the pyramid to a television screen in the gallery.

The exhibition is called "Fourteen Minutes and Fifty-Nine Seconds,” and is part of Thea's The Art Department Series of young artists. The opening reception is 6:30-9 p.m. and tickets are $10. There will be an open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres and music by John Willis and Late Romantics.
