Aerocene is a movement for eco-social justice, adrift on air, floating free from fossil fuels, towards an ethical re-alliance with the Earth and its cosmic/web of life. Rooted in slower activism and weather-dependent interdependency, the project emerges as a platform for environmental, multispecies justice, human rights, and socio-political economies.

On January 25, 2020, the aerosolar sculpture Aerocene Pacha flew with a message “Water and Life are Worth More than Lithium”, written with the Indigenous Communities of Salinas Grandes and Laguna de Guayatayoc in Jujuy, Argentina.

Floating free from fossil fuels, batteries, lithium, solar panels, helium, and hydrogen, Aerocene pilot Leticia Noemi Marqués set 32 world records recognized by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI). This achievement marks the most sustainable flight in human history and one of the most important experiments in the history of aviation.

Fly with Pacha, into the Aerocene

A message, a sculpture, a journey around the sun with Pachamama, a space-time towards an era of complementarities. All proceeds from the rental of Fly with Pacha, into the Aerocene are dedicated exclusively to supporting the communities in their ongoing legal and stewardship efforts to project their ancestral lands.

In this aerocenic 21st century, in which ancestral, feminist and ecological struggles must be our greatest sources of inspiration, we will have to redefine and think about a horizon of just transitions, which point to an alternative system of social relations and links with nature.

Aerocene Newspaper II

The second edition of the Aerocene Newspaper is dedicated to the Indigenous Communities of the Salinas Grandes Basin and Guayatayoc Lagoon, to the resistance and commitment to the defence of water, territories and their ancestral customs in the province of Jujuy, Argentina.

Float at the bottom
of the ocean of air
Challenge political borders
Experience stillness in motion
Become the wind

The Aerocene App floats into new, augmented realities in its latest update: visit the location of an aerosolar flight to see the trace of its trajectory, or transpose an archived Movement to a site of your own choosing. Fly without harming the planet and experience what it feels like to be lifted by the sun and carried with the wind.

Proposed by Aerocene community founder and member Tomás Saraceno, the Aerocene app emerged in 2012 as a result of his Visiting Artist residency at the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST).

Made in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of scientists from the MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS), the Aerocene app is an ever-evolving artwork and continues to be developed by the Aerocene Foundation in collaboration with Studio Tomás Saraceno.
