Tomás Saraceno, HangarBicocca and The Center for Art, Science and Technology at MIT

Okay, so you know I am a big fan of the work of Tomás Saraceno.

Well, he has a new exhibition at HangarBicocca, a new Italian art gallery in Milan--the picture on the left was taken from their set of gallery images.

The title of Saraceno's exhibit is On Space Time Foam--click here to see more images and a brief interview video. 

As stated on their website: On Space Time Foam is a floating structure composed of three levels of clear film that can be accessed by the public, inspired by the cubical configuration of the exhibition space. The work, whose development took months of planning and experimentation with a multidisciplinary team of architects and engineers, will then continue as an important project during a residency of the artist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT in Cambridge (MA).


Speaking of MIT, through their Arts at MIT program, they have a really interesting new Center for Art, Science and Technology (CAST).  Such a center offers a lot of possibilities to complexity artists working at the intersection of complexity science, art, visual complexity and computational modeling and technologies.

Here is what they say on their website: The Center for Art, Science & Technology (MIT CAST) facilitates and creates opportunities for exchange and collaboration among artists, engineers, and scientists.  A joint initiative of the Office of the Provost, the School of Architecture and Planning (SA+P) and School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (SHASS), the Center is committed to fostering a culture where the arts, science and technology thrive as interrelated, mutually informing modes of exploration, knowledge and discovery.
