Tomás Saraceno’s Cloud Cities


Drawing inspiration from the simple beauty of soap bubbles and transforming it into utopian visions of architectural bio-diversity, Argentinian artist Tomás Saraceno’s Cloud Cities is a fantastical, large-scale exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin. 

Saraceno’s background in architecture and astronomy heavily influences his work, making him a creative to keep an eye on. In Cloud Cities, Saraceno has filled the Bahnhof’s grand industrial halls with an intricate web of floating gardens encased in bubble-like forms and intricate spider webs.

Visitors are encouraged to interact with the installations by entering them and experiencing the alien-like environment. Saraceno’s main piece, Mother Bubble, features an undulating plastic base for visitors to lounge on.

Cloud Cities runs until February 9 2012.
