CLOUD CITIES

Tomás Saraceno’s “Cloud Cities” — most recently featured at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin — is a collection of geometric, inflated shapes that challenge our notions of space, place, gravity and future.

Each of the cloud city-pods is suspended in the air at various heights, and is dotted with succulent plants or lined with symmetrical string patterning. Two of the pods in this pseudo-biosphere are accessible to the public. Guests may climb a ladder to tread upon the diameter of the sphere or choose to rest on the moss-covered floor of the dome.

Artist Tomás Saraceno is known for his sculptural work and installations that merge art, architecture, and science. Saraceno's practice is concerned with our living environments, their conceptual design, and speculative futures. The notion of the cloud is essential to the artist’s work. The cloud as metaphor stands for artistic intention, for the meaning of territory and border in today’s (urban) society, and for exploring possibilities for the sustainable development of the human living environment.

Saraceno’s installation is driven by his interest in utopian theory. He works in different media and is interested in our present and future living environment. His experimental, engaging, and compelling works seek an alternative artistic imaginary to re-frame our awareness of the world.
