The exhibition at Wilhelm Hack Museum is the first comprehensive presentation of the latest of Tomás Saraceno’s visions: Aerocene, the Air era. The project involves developing a wide array of flying sculptures that can fly purely thanks to thermals, without engines, gas, fossil fuels or solar cells. By day, the sculptures gain updraft solely through the heat of the sun, at night from the infrared radiation of the Earth’s surface. Initial trial flights have already taken place and pilots have been specially trained. During the exhibition period there will be a test flight starting at Berlin’s Schönefeld airfield and which will be streamed live.
until 30 April 2017
