Poetic Cosmos of the Breath
Born from collective concern for environmental justice and interspecies cohabitation, the permanent installation Movement, created by Tomás Saraceno with Aerocene for Ruinart, highlights the urgency of the climate challenges we are facing in a call to free the air from fossil fuels. Created during a performance in the Champagne region, the artwork draws the power of the elements, reminding us that the air belongs to everyone.
Lifted only by the air and sun and moved by the wind, this augmented reality Aeroglyphic sculpture will be formed by a site-specific trajectory made with the Aerocene Backpack. Movement builds momentum for expanding our environmental imaginaries, leaving a poetic trace in the sky above Maison Ruinart and its vineyard that visitors can see using the Aerocene App. To trace the paths of Aerocenic activity is to acknowledge the non-human mediation at play within the spheres above.
“To be aware of the air is to be sensitive to the environment, to be aware of an element that sustains life, transmits, and carries. Naturally, air evades the senses, occasionally felt as a breeze against the skin, and only rarely made visible as vapour or smog.
Yet, this visibility means the air no longer escapes empirical perception; its natural invisibility has been compromised as humans have increasingly industrialised. Oceans have become filled with debris, the Earth has been covered with concrete, energy is the source of political conflict, and the air absorbs pollutants from every source. This is what is found in the Anthropocene–the proposed geological epoch that commences when human action became the dominant force transforming the environment.
This calls for a new era, a new way of living and relating, independent from fossil fuels, a move into Aerocene – the age of air. Moving in Aerocene is to float following winding trajectories, guided by the wind and propelled by thermal air currents, becoming buoyant only by the heat of the sun.”
This augmented reality sculpture marks the first of a series of international Movements.
