Even if quantum physics and string theory is a little too complicated for your liking, the visualization that Tomás Saraceno presents of these two elusive topics is universally understandable – not to mention fun. The interactive installation, On Space Time Foam, a follow-up to his Cloud Cities project at the New York Met, invites visitors to take a leap of faith onto a series of transparent membranes stretched over the expanse of the Hangar Bicocca atrium in Milan. Because of gravity, weight, and movement, the membranes collide and form a dynamic representation of a space-time surface. Whether it is the physics that has captivated your mind, the thrill of stepping out to a height of 24 meters in the air, or the undulating beauty of the piece, Saraceno’s installation is a pleasure to witness and experience for all individuals.
