Tomás Saraceno’s recent participatory art projects—the layered and experiential On Space Time Foam, currently suspended within Milan’s HangarBiococca, and Cloud City, installed atop the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2012—engage the bodies of viewers to interrogate and explore space. His work has been noted by Bruno Latour as “a [b]eautifully simple and terribly efficient” metaphor for a social theory. How has Saraceno’s training as an architect informed his artistic practice? This conversation with Juan Herreros explores disciplinary boundaries in architecture, and their blurring.
