If you find traditional art exhibitions a little on the boring side and you are more of an adventurous type, then the latest exhibition from Argentinean artist Tomás Saraceno might be just the thing for you.

Saraceno’s “In Orbit” exhibition opened in Düsseldorf, Germany on the 21st June and visitors (who don’t have vertigo) are invited to climb up into the layered exhibition which hangs 60 feet above the museum courtyard and have a go on the giant floating playground!

The exhibition consists of multiple layers of webbing, covering an area of 2500 m2 (across 3 floors) with large air-filled PVC spheres that are 8.5 in diameter that people are able to bounce around in. Those brave enough to climb up into the installation get to see the world from new heights and vantage points and generally have a lot of fun in the process!
