Born in 1973 in Tucumán, Argentina, Tomás Saraceno lives and works in and beyond the planet Earth. After receiving degrees in Architecture and Art in Buenos Aires he continued his postgraduate studies at SHBK– Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main, attending IUAV in Venice thereafter. In 2009, he partook in the International Space Studies Program at NASA, and was awarded the prestigious Calder Prize. In 2012, he participated in the artistic residency at MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology, with whom he began an ongoing collaboration. Saraceno’s works have been exhibited in numerous international solo and group exhibitions, such as Metropolitan Museum of Art (2012), Hamburger Bahnof (2011), and the Venice Art Biennale (2009). His practice, informed by the fields of art, architecture, natural and social sciences, articulates novel and visionary statements, explores sustainable ways of sensing and inhabiting the environment, and seeks for new possible relations between human, non-human, and the Earth.
