Within the Aerocene movement, different Possible Future(s) are envisioned and discussed: shared, pollution-free, solidary, socially and environmentally sustainable futures. But in this case we highlight a vision of an Aero Solar past brought forward by Aerocene Community member Irina Bogdan @irinambogdan
Inspired by the poetic aerosolar flights free from carbon emissions that took place on top of the frozen Rummelsburg lake in Berlin in February 2021, she went on to create a collage mixing Aerocene Sculptures and Arent Arentsz oil painting “Skaters on the Amstel”, made in Belgium in 1620.
On the occasion of the Rummelsberg flights last year an Aerocene Community member Lorenzo Malloni @malloni.lorenzo wrote: “As soon as the black Aerosolar sculptures get inflated on the ice with only air, the power of the sun lifts them off instantaneously – amplified by the albedo reflection effect on the white, frosty lake. Immediately, their movements in the thin air generate a focal point attracting the public and participants onto the wide white stage”.
But rather than keep us in the past, this vision may propel us into devising new Possible Future(s):
How to cool down the planet and foster a new sensitivity towards it?
How to explore without exploitation?
How to subvert the fossil fuels regime with the one of the Sun?
