Tomás Saraceno

Today’s hottest name in the international art world weaves with an open-mind influences from technology, space research and social theory into a web. Saraceno has studied spiders and their webs for his works exhibited at the Helsinki Festival. The room-sized installation, 14 Billions (Working Title) – a giant Black Widow’s web built out of ropes consisting 23,000 knots – is on display for the first time in Finland.

In addition, Saraceno creates a whole new piece of art in Helsinki in which spider webs collected from a geographically wide area and models based on them meet.
