NTU CCA Singapore is pleased to bring in Singapore the pioneering and visionary work of the artist, Tomás Saraceno. Situated at the intersection between art, architecture and science, Tomás Saraceno’s artistic practice is an articulation of utopian vision for new forms of sustainable living and cohabitation.
Arachnid Orchestra. Jam Sessions at NTU CCA Singapore is a complete new production by Tomás Saraceno that brings his long-term research on spider webs into the realm of sound. The artist will use spider webs as musical instruments embodying the incredible structural properties of the spider’s silk, but also spider’s sophisticated mode of communication through vibrations. Arachnid Orchestra. Jam Sessions is an interactive sound and visual installation, a process-driven laboratory for experimentation that pushes the boundaries of interspecies communication.
Curated by Ute Meta Bauer, Founding Director and Anca Rujoiu, Curator, Exhibitions.
