Thank you to all the participants from IAK-Braunschweig who came to Ehra-Lessien refugee camp on June 3rd! While we were unable to launch any Aerocene sculptures due to high winds and clouds, the workshop was great.
We look forward to going back again very soon!
Get ready for the Ehra-Lessien launch tomorrow

We hope that a lot of you are going to join us tomorrow for the launch at Ehra-Lessien refugee camp!
Please think about a way to go there and self organize! We would strongly suggest to you to meet at IAK at 9:30 a.m. and take eveybody who would like to go to your car, or ask around who could bring you to Ehra-Lessien. Unfortunately there are no empty seats left!
We will meet you in Ehra-Lessien at 11:00 a.m. on 3 June 2016
We will explore the site with Director of Notunterkunft Thomas Schweigler and his team, have a lunch with the community living there, and make some amazing aerosolar performances together! Let’s hope for some great weather!
Students: don’t forget your assignment tomorrow to take a photo of your payload and write a couple of sentences.
Very happy to see you tomorrow,
The Aerocene Team
Participants from IAK Architecture-Related Art Institute, directed by Tomás Saraceno, will join him in a launch on 3 June 2016 at a refugee camp to test a number of Aerocene solar sculptures. Different payloads will be attached to the various sculptures as they rise into the air.
This page will chronicle all of the Aerocene test launches and performances by Tomás Saraceno and his Studio Team, in collaboration with participants from IAK-Braunschweig, and whoever else would like to enter the world of the Aerocene! It will be a resource for information on launch locations and times, and it will also be a space where participants can leave comments and suggestions.
Let’s explore our interconnected world together!
