6. Cloud Cities Exhibition by Tomas Saraceno
As a kid, you never needed an actual reason for blowing bubbles. It always just seemed like the perfect pastime at any given moment. Whether you blew them up big or small, the idea of making round and soapy air figures seemed like one big magic trick. This must have been what inspired Tomas Saraceno’s Cloud Cities, an architectural bubble simulation big enough to stand or jump around in. These huge bubble figures were originally created to give museum visitors the feeling of floating in a futuristic galaxy, similar to the relationship between space and Earth. Ideally, Saraceno sees these structures as the first step to his goal for a floating city or the very least a floating museum. Sounds like a pretty good idea to us.
