TOMAS SARACENO – Art and Science Build a Web of 14 Billion

by Red Cell

In a site specific piece 2 years in the making, Tomás Saraceno collaborated with spider experts, astrophysicists, architects and engineers to develop this abstract, arachnid artwork. “14 Billion” takes a common black widow’s web and super sizes it. He began this work back in 2009 at the Venice Biennale with his effort, “Galaxy Forming along Filaments, like Droplets along the Strands of a Spider’s Web.” Along with his collaborators in various scientific fields, Saraceno has created a series of installations with his enormous spider web as the center point of interest. There will also be essays, research texts and 15 other artworks to peruse in the gallery. 14 Billion will be on display at Stockholm’s Bonniers Konsthall gallery until 20 June 2010.

Saraceno is an Argentine artist based out of Frankfurt who has recently been exploring the way scientists use webs as a way to map the structure of the known universe. Some other significant work by him include, “Garden/Air-Port-City/Iridescent” and “Cloudy House” (see below), both of which will have parts included in the current exhibition. Visitors will be able to interact with these scientific sculptures and even add to the Cloudy House exhibit!
