Tomas Saraceno, Poetic Cosmos of the Breath

View all 9 Photos

Tomas Saraceno has given us a perspective of living exhilarated. His masterpiece called Poetic Cosmos of the Breath is a dream that he has carried for harmonious cities floating together neither touching earth nor space, but gathering together perfectly as if on clouds.  The materials he used is similar to a thin parachute, a material sturdy enough to hold the weight of a few men.

Finding it in their hearts to explore and play like children in an open field, the team joyfully interacts with the floating foundation.  Walking on it moves the air trapped inside, causing the reaction elsewhere to bubble up.  Sensations like a hug from the atmosphere, to be caught inside surrounds you by its force field of comfort.

This glorious version of the inflated world swirls captivating iridescent colors changing with every movement.   It was presented in Gunpowder Park of Essex, Maryland on a clear morning, just as the sun was rising.  He’s given us the notion that one can inhabit space that’s been trapped in a cloud.  Its a phenomenon of creative genius, graphed with mesmerizing artistic form.

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
