In orbit is the last installation of artist/architect Tomás Saraceno with whom we are working these weeks for The Paris Atelier program. Here is how he presents this work : when I look at the multilayered levels of diaphanous lines and spheres, I am reminded of models of the universe that depict the forces of gravity and planetary bodies. for me, the work visualizes the space-time continuum, the three-dimensional web of a spider, the ramifications of tissue in the brain, dark matter, or the structure of the universe. with “in orbit”, proportions enter into new relationships; human bodies become planets, molecules, or social black holes.
