Tomás Saraceno refers to gravity as the weakest yet omnipresent force in the universe. He explores the theory of the Soviet scientist Alexander Chizhevsky, who studied the effects of the periodic activities of the sun on the biological organisms of the Earth. In his artistic practice, Saraceno is engaged with the post-carbon society. For his performance “Aerocene” (2016) in White Sands, New Mexico, he used an innovative process that allowed objects to fly for several hours without using fossil fuels, batteries, or rare gases.
“Gravity is the weakest force in the universe, but the most abundant.”
– Tomás Saraceno
