Suspended Climbing


Following up on his impressive installation (Cloud City) on the Met roof last summer, artist Tomás Saraceno installed an even larger and more ambitious interactive place for climbing at the K21 Staendehaus museum in Düsseldorf. “In Orbit” is essentially a giant landscape of 27,000 feet of netting, which hangs 65 feet over the museum’s foyer. Visitors can climb or hang out throughout the layers, suspended above the floor, in the netting or giant plastic orbs that also hang in the space. The work will be up through autumn of 2014.
