Spiders inform Tomás Saraceno’s latest art installation

What can we learn from spiders and their intricate woven webs, and how can this help us find sustainable ways of sensing and inhabiting the environment?

From the cosmic web to the minute dust particles collecting on the silken threads, it makes for a provocative dialogue on our connections to one another, and to the wider universe.

Take a closer look in my report in Wallpaper*.
