Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno was trained as an architect, and works with chemists, engineers, and astrophysicists (for starters) to create his beautiful sculptures, many of which are created from elastic cords and acrylic glass.
From gallery Bonniers Konsthall:
“Saraceno’s art explores possible visions of a better world, generating poetic, playful propositions for a human life in balance with the planet. His works occupy the border regions between science, art and architecture. They can include anything from spheres and cloud creations to flying gardens, space elevators and futuristic dwellings. The dream of a weightless state and the possibility of a human being moving freely above the clouds, free of the confines of gravity, recurs in several works.”
