Supermundanae Naturae - Otherworldly Nature, 2016

Serigraphy. Particular outside installation

There is always a silent moment before a beginning, a silence that precedes the frantic movement of cells in the pulsing space where life germinates. The antithesis of this frantic movement is captured and framed on an underwater theatrical stage where Otherworldly Nature takes life. The stage is seen as a liminal threshold, where these creatures/plants live, between earth and sky in an altered spatio-temporality. Otherworldly beings are suspended here in the middle of space. These creatures are not growing from soil, they cannot fly—they are cemented within this threshold. It is a miniature world of color where a new life emerges and invites curious to come closer. What exactly are these creatures? They embodied the idea that we are able to create a new life form after we created the synthetic cell. They show us new possibilities and force us to see that as we develop new technologies we are changing the process of evolution. Evolution is not merely an autonomous process of nature; it is something we can manipulate – even create – artificially.

Life is a mysterious, unpredictable, unexpected, unintended, continuous mutation.

There is a battle being fought between the unexpected consequences of altering the biology of our planet, which could have a negative impact on the experience of life in general, vs. the notion that these changes can be beneficial to our ability to push past the limits of the biosphere as an attempt to minimize human suffering.

These circles represent the stages of the “Synthetic Cells,” from its “Division” to the “Embryonic state.”

Using the microscope as an entry point for exploring the diverse patterns of nature, from insect development to cell division, these compositions point at the nature of where life has come from and where it is potentially going. I intend the viewer to be transported in this space, we are changing our world physiologically and are being changed by it.

Life is a mysterious, unpredictable, unexpected, unintended, and continuous mutation.
