"When I look at these complex layers of translucent lines and spheres, I am reminded of models of the universe, representing gravity and planetary bodies. The work visualizes for me the space-time continuum, a three-dimensional web of a spider, the ramifications of matter in the brain, dark matter or the structures of the universe. "
"In orbit" sets proportions in new relations; Human bodies are planets, molecules or social black holes. Saraceno´s three different layers of walkable grid structure appears like a cloud-like landscape. The space is for the artist a vibrating network of relationships, nerves, resonances and synchronous communication - a new digital geography that is physically tangible.
