Treptower Park Berlin

Wrapped in the deep fragrance of the forest, I listen to the flapping of the birds’ wings, to the stirring of the ferns. I’m freed from gravity and float up -just a little- from the ground and drift in the air. Of course, I can’t stay there forever. It’s just a momentary sensation -open my eyes and it’s gone. Still, it’s an overwhelming experience. Being able to float in the air.

Kafka on the shore, Haruki Murakami

As the boreal summer slowly unfolds in the northern hemisphere, a group of Aerocene community members from Berlin set out to inaugurate the aerosolar floating season.

United at Treptower Park, alongside the river Spree, they inflate the Aerocene sculpture contained in the Backpack by running around, filling it up with the same air we all breathe. As the sun heats, slowly, the air inside becomes warmer and thus lighter than the air outside.

United at Treptower Park, alongside the river Spree, they inflate the Aerocene sculpture contained in the Backpack by running around, filling it up with the same air we all breathe. As the sun heats, slowly, the air inside becomes warmer and thus lighter than the air outside.

The sculpture begins to literally float in the lower atmosphere, accompanied by a gentle breeze of light air blowing from the north at 2km/h. The conditions are ideal for aerosolar flight!

The flight aims to try new methods of tracking the sculpture’s movements -or Aeroglyph, an invisible drawing in the air, later revealed with the help of technology.
