A site-specific installation conceived by Tomás Saraceno for the 58th Venice Biennale, the pavilion hosts a large-scale hybrid spider web woven by different spider species forming a floating landscape inside an open carbon fiber frame. The outside walls of the pavilion are covered with a visual specifically conceived and produced for the Venice Biennale. Taking inspiration from various form of spider divination from different parts of the world, the pavilion features also an interactive, site-specific Arachnomancy Cards Deck.
