Large-Scale Installation Lets Visitors Walk On Air
'On Space Time Foam' is an art exhibition at HangarBicocca by Tomas Saraceno with 3 layers of clear film that visitors can climb on.
Artist Tomás Saraceno’s visionary installation ‘On Space Time Foam‘ at HangarBicocca, is a floating structure that is accessible to the public. The structure is composed of three levels of clear film that can be walked across and climbed on.
Wired notes that the presence and movement of others impacts everyone’s experience with the installation. ‘On Space Time Foam’ is viewable by all visitors from the ground floor, and the upper floors and layers can only be accessed by those over the age of 18. The installation took months of planning and experimentation with a multidisciplinary team of architects and engineers. It will continue as an important project during the artist’s residency at MIT.
