The Cosmic Spiderwebs of Tomas Saraceno
Inspired byspider webs, architect and artist Tomás Saracenois known for his fantastic sculptures and installations that merge art, architecture, and science. His spiderwebs take form in his laboratory in the rainforests of Ecuador. First he and his team put a solitary spider into a transparent cube where it will spin a web. Then, they replace that spider with a colony of social spiders. As individuals build on top of the original spider’s creation, Saraceno and his team rotate the boxes, inducing disoriented new patterns. Formed of complex interwoven geometries suspended in air, each piece appears as a unique galaxy floating within an expansive, infinite landscape.
