A massive interactive art exhibit by Tomás Saraceno called In Orbit
has been assembled under a vast glass dome ceiling at the K21 Museum
in Düsseldorf, Germany. Planned to remain on display until fall 2014, the installation is made using steel wire mesh and transparent orbits which come together in a surreal landscape reminiscent of a sea of clouds — on which visitors are invited to climb. As visitors move across the nets and inside spheres, their movements cause vibrations like a real spider web, which combined with heights exceeding 80 feet, create a fascinating spatial experience.
