Aerocene is an interdisciplinary artistic endeavor developed by artist Tomás Saraceno and the Aerocene Foundation. It raises awareness about the effects of fossil fuels and proposes ways to jointly address challenges we are all facing in the Anthropocene epoch. Aerocene holds a message of simplicity, creativity and collaboration to rethink solutions for the increasing amount of geopolitical challenges, reminding us of our symbiotic relationship with the Earth and all its species. It is an open invitation to come together declaring our independence from CO2 emissions.
Tomás Saraceno’s practice moves toward the entanglement of diverse threads of thought, including art, life science and the social sciences. Enmeshed at the junction of these worlds, his floating sculptures, community projects and interactive installations propose and explore new, sustainable ways of inhabiting and sensing the environment.
