Artist Tomas Saraceno is known for his sculptural work and installations that merge art, architecture, and science. Saraceno’s practice is concerned with our living environments, their conceptual design, and speculative futures. His experimental, engaging, and compelling works seek an alternative artistic imaginary to re-frame our awareness of the world.
Saraceno is the winner of the Calder Prize and was artist-in-residence at the International Space Studies Program of NASA in summer 2009. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally. In 2012, Saraceno constructed installation Cloud City for the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, creating a complex network of transparent and reflective planes that disrupted the space while heightening the elements around it the viewers, the sky, and Central Park.
