argentinian artist tomas saraceno is exhibiting his work ‘galaxies forming along filaments, like droplets along the strands of a spider’s web’ as part of the ‘fare mondi’ / making worlds / bantin duniyan / 制造世界 / weltenmachen / construire des mondes/ fazer mundos…exhibition.

saraceno’s interest in architectural projects is part of the artist’s ongoing fascination with utopian theories and astronomical constellations. his conception of what constitutes an architectural structure is admirably broad, and his new installation examines how the black widow’s gossamer filaments are able to suspend extreme weights through the use of complex geometry.
