Tomás Saraceno is creating an ambitious, site-specific installation that will be suspended across the BMA’s recently renovated East Lobby. The composition combines clusters of iridescent-paneled spheres with a sweeping “spider web” of black ropes that will be woven onsite across a two–story open area bordered by the lobby staircase and mezzanine. Appearing somewhat like bubbles, these spherical modules evoke the artist’s visionary plans for “cloud cities,” which look to naturally occurring forms for inspiration and might provide environments for future human habitation. Similarly, the intricate spider web of rope refers to a natural structure that encompasses the qualities of strength, beauty, and flexibility.
