Aerocene is a transdisciplinary artistic project, an invitation to shape a period of time.
a new epoch.
Aerocene, developed by Aerocene Foundation, manifests as a series of air-fuelled sculptures that will achieve the longest, emission-free journey around the world: becoming buoyant only by the heat of the Sun and infrared radiation from the surface of Earth. The sculpture floats without burning fossil fuels, without using solar panels and batteries; and without helium, hydrogen and other rare gases. Aerocene holds a message of simplicity, creativity and cooperation for a world of tumultuous geopolitical relations,reminding us of our symbiotic relationship with the Earth and all its species.
WORLDS FIRST FULLY-CERTIFIED AEROSOLAR FLIGHT
The Aerocene D-O AEC air-fuelled sculpture already successfully carried passengers without any use of propane for nearly three hours. This recent launch at the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, USA witnessed artist Tomás Saraceno achieving the World Record for the first, and the longest, purely solar-powered, certified, lighter-than-air tethered flight.
