Saraceno Met Installation, Cloud City

Take a walk in the sky. Check out Tomás Saraceno’s pod-like Cloud City on the roof of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It’s great to see but better to experience. Visitors can walk on and through the structure of clear plexiglass, polished steel, and open windows which create an exhilarating (and occasionally frightening) sensation of walking on air.

Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) will create a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the 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.
