O’Connor Building for Engineering Science. Hear from Saraceno about his interdisciplinary practice and be the first to see the multi-story, permanent art installation inspired by the artist’s interest in complex structures found in the natural world, such as clouds, bubbles, and spider webs. About the artist: Saraceno’s work with local communities, scientific researchers, and institutions around the world, aims to seek out a more equal balance of human, techno- and bio-diversity, with the understanding that knowledge is produced from specific situations.
