Tomás Saraceno’s Air-Balloon Made out of Thousands of Plastic Bags

Saraceno1

“Becoming Aerosolar” by Argentinian artist, Tomás Saraceno, is currently on view at the 21er Haus art museum in Vienna through August 30th. The installation is basically a giant plastic bag made up of thousands of recycled plastic bags that floats into the sky, air-balloon style, when heated by the sun. Like much of Saraceno’s work, this piece draws attention to human ingenuity as well as our ability to impact the environment and atmosphere that surrounds us. More images below!

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
