A Recursive Web of Models: Studio Tomás Saraceno’s Working Objects
This article addresses Studio Tomas Saraceno's art practices with spiders and spider webs. Focusing especially on the On Air exhibition (Palais de Tokyo, 2018-2019), the article argues that the many curatorial and studio based art-science practices establish working objects, a term borrowed from history of science research. These working objects - such as models of complex structures both architectural and scientific - function then also as contributions to the wider field of environmental humanities that benefits from such arts based approaches and projects.

Abstract

This article addresses Studio Tomas Saraceno's art practices with spiders and spider webs. Focusing especially on the On Air exhibition (Palais de Tokyo, 2018-2019), the article argues that the many curatorial and studio based art-science practices establish working objects, a term borrowed from history of science research. These working objects - such as models of complex structures both architectural and scientific - function then also as contributions to the wider field of environmental humanities that benefits from such arts based approaches and projects.
