Tomas Saraceno - In Orbit (2013)

"A multilayer, netted web 65 feet high at Germany’s K21 Staendehaus museum. The three levels of netting are connected by airfilled PVC balls reaching up to 30 feet in diameter. Those who enter Saraceno’s hybrid vision experience into a constantly fluctuating geography, in which the landscape and viewers constantly shift.

When several people enter the audacious construction simultaneously, their presence sets it into motion, altering the tension of the steel wires and the intervals between the three meshwork levels. Visitors can coordinate their activities within the space, and are able –- not unlike spiders in a web –- to perceive space through the medium of vibration.”
