We are warm bodies,
rising with the air, heated by the sun.
We are temperature, we are air, we are alive.

Aerocene is an era-in-the-making, a community, a non-profit foundation.

As a movement for eco-social justice, adrift on air, floating free from fossil fuels, lithium or hydrogen, Aerocene moves us towards an ethical re-alliance with the Earth and its cosmic web(s) of life. Rooted in slower activism and weather-dependent interdependency,  Aerocene stands as a platform for climate justice, an eco-social energy transition, human and more-than-human rights and alternative modes of knowing and sensing. 

Our work connects beyond disciplines and borders, taking shape through application into art, technology, justice and education.

Since 2007, Aerocene has grown in parallel with Museo Aero Solar, and formally established as a foundation in 2015. During this journey, Aerocene has been activated across workshops, festivals and international exhibitions; through open-source, ‘Do-it-Together’ tool-building; in the testing and flying of aerosolar sculptures and their mobilization within performance and protest; by an interdisciplinary community, active in 126 cities, 43 countries, and 6 continents.

We invite you to join this movement, for a more just and eco-social society for all!

The Alfarctio Gathering, Salinas Grandes and Laguna de Guayatayoc, Jujuy, Argentina, 2023. Organized by Aerocene and the Indigenous Communities of Jujuy.

Drifting towards a more just society
Walking with our feet on the ground and heads in the clouds
Standing in solidarity with the Earth’s guardians


Aerocene acts in solidarity with all those fighting for an eco-social transition and the Rights of Nature.


Throughout history, humanity has rehearsed with lighter-than-air vehicles in search of a different way to move through and with the air, only with the power of the sun.

Presented here are various attempts of solar flight, undertaken by people whose types of movements into the atmosphere have become marginalised, and rendered invisible under the hegemony of the fossil fuel regime. 


Adjective. Noun.

1. The capacity to harness the energy of the Sun in ways that make moving with, and relating to, the ocean of air self-sustaining.

2. A body of air heated by direct solar radiation, achieving lower density than the air outside of it to float in equilibrium with the atmosphere.

3. The desire for futurity expressed in the rejection of fossil fuels and the extractive practices and relations of the industrial-colonial model, embodied in the will to sense and collaborate with the atmosphere and all immersed in its elemental milieu.

Alive on air, in flight, within orbit
For regrowth, re-cognition, and resistance
