bubbles

Tomas Saraceno‘s interactive installation Cloud Cities @the Hamburger Bahnof, Berlin, consists of twenty clear bubbles of varying sizes being suspended at different heights.
Viewers can interact with all of the bubbles: you can choose to climb on top of them or go inside.
Within each orb is a different organic material like water or plant life.
