Ruinart – a poetic view on climate change

Ruinart will celebrate its 300th anniversary in 2029. Brought to life through artistic collaborations, this countdown also resonates with the urgency of the climate crisis. Born from collective concern about the impact of climate change, the artwork created by Tomás Saraceno with Aerocene for Ruinart embodies the utopia of flying fossil free. The floating bubble is lifted only by the air and sun and moved by the wind.

A one degree difference between the ambiant air and the air trapped inside the Aerocene is enough to set the inflatable aerosolar sculpture into flight, in the same way that, in the Champagne region, warming the climate by one degree disrupts the natural grape ripening process. The flight of the Aerocene leaves a poetic trail in the sky above Maison Ruinart, an aeroglyphic sculpture called Movement.
