Artist Tomas Saraceno's latest project is being featured atop New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. In true Saraceno style, the installation is bulbous with rounded chunks jutting out at every side. The interconnected segments are also reflective, offering aerial views of the city.

Met visitors are invited to step inside Saraceno's spheres. The mirrors lining each section are spliced with sheets of glass, allowing the exhibits patrons to take in a bit of themselves and their surroundings at the same time.

The webbed nature of 'Cloud City,' as it is now dubbed, is consistent with Saraceno's past work at the Hamburger Bahnhof railway station and at the Venice Art Biennale, all of which strive to push structural boundaries.
