Cloud City by Tomás Saraceno

After my recent visit to the Met this week, I will be bringing you a series of art “parades” of some of the works which captivated me. To kick off my “art-parade” here is this interesting piece of metal in the sky…

Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) has created a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the Met Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Visitors may enter and walk through these habitat-like, modular structures grouped in a nonlinear configuration. Over the past decade, Saraceno has established a practice of constructing habitable networks based upon complex geometries and interconnectivity that merge art, architecture, and science. The interdisciplinary project “Cloud Cities/Air Port City” is rooted in the artist’s investigation of expanding the ways in which we inhabit and experience our environment.

May 15, 2012–Through November 4, 2012 (weather permitting) @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
