CERN Accelerating science

Argentinian Tomás Saraceno is best known for his large-scale, interactive installations and floating sculptures, and for his interdisciplinary approach to art. His work explores new, sustainable ways of sensing and inhabiting the environment, the result of research into the origins of the observable universe, arachnology and the potential future for airborne dwelling. He launched the Aerocene in 2015, an open-source, community project for artistic and scientific exploration of environmental issues. He's the first person to have scanned, reconstructed and re-imagined spiders’ woven spatial habitats, and possesses the only three-dimensional spider web collection in existence.
