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.
It’s now official : Hugh Dutton Associates is taking part in The Paris Atelier “LIGHTER THAN AIR”, an advanced academic program run in Paris by the Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation with the participation of visiting artist Tomas Saraceno.
Thanks to our friend Andrea Graziano we’ve been informed of this exciting summer course in Paris presented by Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. The Paris Atelier – Architect as Critical Maker course with the motto “Lighter than air” will be held in Paris from June 3 until July 15, 2013 with visiting artist Tomas Saraceno. If you are a reader of this blog, you probably know that we are very interested in the artist’s work who is famous to push the conventions of art and architecture and their capacities to invoke inventive solutions to complex questions about how we inhabit and coexist in the world.
