Artists are often inspired by science but Argentinian artist TOMÁS SARACENO is in a league of his own. He is part scientist, engineer, researcher, engineer and artist.
His mixed body of art is astonishing--from redesigning spider webs to floating cities, his work needs to be experienced to be understood. The 3 d model of a spider web above is a work of scientific study as well as a work of art. I cannot do his work justice here so please see his website for thorough descriptions of his complex and fascinating work: http://tomassaraceno.com
