Inflatables, webbing, iridescent foil, elastic
ø 170 cm approx.
The work consists of 32 elliptical inflatables, made from transparent PVC, that form a sphere of about 170 cm in diameter. The inflatable elements are tied together in a black webbing matrix holding the lightweight sculpture suspended in tension. The sculpture refers to Tomás Saraceno's larger ongoing project Cloud Cities in which the artist explores the possibilities of future autonomous and sustainable environments, architecture and urbanism. Saraceno seeks to propose utopian visions of cities, settlements and gardens, floating in the air and relaying only on the energy of natural sources.
