Tomas Saraceno, Galaxies forming along fliaments, like droplets along the strands of a spider's web, 2009

Biosphere MW32/Flying Garden/Air-Port-City, 2007

Tomas Saraceno hails from Argentina in which he explores the mathematical elements of raw nature and puts them in formations that are astounding to experience in a museum. In this video, we see the making of his piece Galaxies forming along filaments (2009) at the Miami Art Museum. Originally opened at the Venice Biennale, visitors of the exhibition had to climb their way through these mass "biospheres" in order to get through. They interacted with the pieces and in a sense made the art come alive. Although Saraceno's work does not directly involve himself with new media, I thought this was a fun and interesting artist to look at because of the beautiful latticework he creates—very biomorphic, but mechanical all in one experience.
