Aerocene Laboratory. AEROCENE Explorer launch

As part of the public program accompanying Tomás Saraceno’s installation Moving Atmospheres, Garage launched Aerocene Laboratory—an interdisciplinary project aimed at the exploration of the notion of Aerocene and the apprehension of the technical and social aspects of a future in the aerosphere.

The Laboratory prepared and conducted the launch of the aerosolar sculpture Aerocene Backpack created by Tomás Saraceno. The sculpture elevates itself into the air without burning fossil fuels, batteries or engines, by solar energy alone. On a clear and windless day, the participants were able to launch the sculpture and draw an airglyph, which was their own signature, with the air, thereby becoming a part of the Aerocene manifesto.
