Fwd: before seeing the Impossible Conversations exhibit, my mom and i headed for the roof. here stood tomas saraceno’s “cloud city.”
Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) has created a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Visitors may enter and walk through these habitat-like, modular structures grouped in a nonlinear configuration. Over the past decade, Saraceno has established a practice of constructing habitable networks based upon complex geometries and interconnectivity that merge art, architecture, and science. The interdisciplinary project “Cloud Cities/Air Port City” is rooted in the artist’s investigation of expanding the ways in which we inhabit and experience our environment. (The Met)

I personally loved it! I love The Met’s rooftop to begin with, but with the sun and the skyline in the background, the reflections of everything and all the visitors made it that much better. It’s open until Nov. 4, get over there! No excuses.
