In Orbit: an interactive sculpture by Tomás Saraceno
A 2.500 square metre tall net made of multi-tiered wires spans across the piazza in the K21 in Düsseldorf, Germany. It’s the work of Argentine-born artist, Tomás Saraceno, his most complex creation called In Orbit. Floating 25 meters above the ground, his interactive installation is created from three levels of wires and clear and metallic orbs.
The artist invites visitors who are free of giddiness to climb and wander in his utopian space, which changes its shape every time a new visitor enters the netting. Saraceno’s idea is to develop structures of complex geometries that display connections and relations in the micro as well as in the macro and note how everything affects everything else with the slightest change.
