Spectacular Aerocene Sculpture to Fly at Forest
21 Jun 2017
The schools of art, architecture and science collide with the spectacular floating Aerocene sculptures that will fly high above Bushey Norwood exclusively for the Forest of Imagination this year from 30th June until 2nd July.
Harnessing wind currents and the heat of the sun, these incredible air-fuelled sculptures reach up to eight metres in size and are completely emission free.
The Aerocene Project, is a remarkable exploration into navigation, architecture, the future of human habitation and the environment.
An Aerocene Explorer will be flying everyday at the Forest of Imagination, if the conditions and weather are appropriate, whilst an exhibition of theAerocene Foundation, a project founded by artist Tomas Saraceno and developed by a non-profit Aerocene Foundation that unites a global community of researchers, activists, thinkers and technologists, will be held inside as an installation at The Edge Arts.
Widely regarded as the one of the most famous Latin American artists on the contemporary art scene, Tomás Saraceno’s work focuses on re-imagining how human beings could navigate around the world in the future using the jet stream highways in the sky.
Tomas Saraceno: “Much like the universe the Aerocene Project is constantly expanding.”
This year’s Forest of Imagination will connect people to nature in a variety of wild and imaginative ways. Forest is open from June 30th until July 2nd from 10am to 6pm every day. Forest of Imagination is free to all.
