As part of ThinkSwiss – Brainstorm the future – swissnex San Francisco brings you an exhibit presenting a series of 15 prints from the artist and scientist Ariel Ruiz i Altaba.

“Minimal Landscapes represents an exploration of form in its essence, devoid of distracting elements. The photographic images show black islands forming archipelagoes of explicit and implicit meanings that become imaginary landscapes in the viewer’s mind. Each image is the approximation of actual living form to classical minimal perfection.”

The exhibition opens on September 19th, kicked off by a round-table discussion on the relationship between art and science : “Boundaries and Meaning in Landscapes: From Science to Art and Back”.

Ariel Ruiz i Altaba has exhibited his art work internationally in private and museum collections in the USA and in Europe. He is also Louis-Jeantet Professor at the School of Medicine of the University of Geneva.

Think Swiss is a US-wide program on Education, Research and Innovation. The program is under the auspices of Presence Switzerland (PRS), the Swiss State Secretariat for Education and Research (SER) and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA).

This exhibit is sponsored by ThinkSwiss and is co-sponsored by the Leonardo Scientists Working Group and the University of Geneva.
