Museo Aero Solar

Museo Aero Solar is a flying museum, a collective artwork. It is a solar-energy air balloon, completely made up of reused plastic bags, with new sections being added each time it travels the world, thus changing techniques, drawings and shapes, and growing in size every time it sets sail in the air. The core of the museo resides in the inventiveness of local inhabitants, not in its image: among spontaneous networking action and art, do-it-yourself technology and dreaming.

Following landings in Switzerland, Israel, Colombia and Italy, the Museo Aero Solar collective came to Bristol and, over the past few months, have taken part in a collaboration with Arnolfini which culminated in an inflation in Hengrove Park this morning.
