This project, titled ‘On Space Time Foam’, was created by artist Tomás Saraceno, together with the help of a multidisciplinary team of architects and engineers. Alo Lindstrand Technologies, a leading company in the research and production of hot-air balloons and space vehicles, took part in the project.
The installation is composed of three levels of thin clear film raised and set on the walls of the “Cubo” at HangarBicocca (an art museum in Milan) covering an area of 400 square metres.
“The films constituting the living core of HangarBicocca are constantly altered by climate and the simple movement of people”, Tomás Saraceno said to describe the project. “Each step, each breath, modifies the entire space: it is a metaphor for how our interrelations affect the Earth and other universes.”
