Walking on Air, For Real

10.31.12 Irina Dvalidze

Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno‘s latest installation On Space Time Foam currently up at HangarBicocca in Milan is ridiculous. From the artist who brought you New York’s favorite Cloud City currently housed at the Met Rooftop, this entirely interactive piece features layers of gigantic clear film fixed in massive open space allowing visitors to climb, walk and lie all up inside/on top of it.

The huge structure is fully dependent on cause and effect,  metaphorically and physically mimicking human interaction and relationships. No installation visitor attempting to engage the surface of the structure can make a single action without affecting someone around them trying to do the same. Each layer of the piece is constructed with enough space in between to allow for human movement/fun.

Saracano’s aerial marvel will stay on display through February 3, 2013. It is free and open to the public. Check out the video form Saracano’s past Berlin exhibition below:
