How can art contribute to the perception of nature in its complexity? How can it promote sensitivity, and empathy for other forms of life as well
as awareness for a harmonious balance between human existence and the natural world? Gabriela Torres Ruiz addresses these guiding
questions. Although "nature" and "culture" are often seen as separate - even antithetical - in the Western consciousness, Torres' images show
that everything in this universe has a common origin.

She was inspired by Adrian Bejan's theory "The Constructal Law" , and based on it, explored "flow patterns that determine the structure of the
entire universe." These flow patterns are found in rivers, neural networks, lightning, the lungs, the growth of plants, and social dynamics.
"Every flow architecture on Earth follows the natural tendency to want to flow more easily. The evolution of its movement always pursues the
goal of coming into equilibrium and minimizing resistance."

The project was developed in cooperation with the Berlin Medizinhistorisches Museum der Charité, the Berlin Museum für Natural History, and with
the kind support of the Volkart Foundation, Winterthur, Switzerland.
