AEROCENE

AN OPEN ARTISTIC PROJECT

 

Aerocene is a multi-disciplinary project that foregrounds the artistic and scientific exploration of environmental issues. In the wake of the Anthropocene, the project
promotes common links between social,
mental, and environmental ecologies.

Inflated only by air, lifted only by the sun, carried only by the wind, towards a sustainable future.

 
 
 

ABOUT AEROCENE

 
 

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.

INTRODUCING

THE AEROCENE EXPLORER

a backpack that can teach you how to fly.

enter the aerocene

The Aerocene Explorer is your personal tool for solar-powered atmospheric exploration: a tethered-flight starter kit offering a new way to sense the environment and capture the world around you. Enclosed in a portable backpack is everything you need to float an Explorer sculpture and start exploring the skies. The sculpture floats without burning fossil fuels, helium, and other rare gases. Inflated only by air, lifted only by the sun, carried only by the wind, towards a clean and sustainable future.

You are invited to try out the Aerocene Explorer in its beta version and investigate a different model for living and floating in this century. Feel free to customise and use it as you like, with your community, neighbours, and friends. Using the Explorer's camera, you can document your experience and share it. What was your Explorer launch like? What issue in your area would you most like to shed some light on? Introduce us to yourself, your friends, your community. Your Explorer.

The Aerocene Explorer is currently being tested and developed by a passionate global community of artists, geographers, philosophers, thinkers, speculative scientists, explorers, balloonists, and technologists, and other enthusiasts.
