Tomás Saraceno
On the occasion of the exhibition Ciento sesenta y tres mil años luz (One Hundred Sixty-Three Thousand Light Years), the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey (MARCO) presents a video featuring artist Tomás Saraceno.

The exhibition is the result of many analogies that connect the origin of the universe through simulations made in 2001. A theory based on three-dimensional spider-like webs that make it possible to establish links in the behavior of the cosmos after the Big Bang.

One of the works accompanying the exhibition is a film that allows viewers to “witness 163,000 light years”, a stretch of time that no human can ever experience directly.
