between the data-driven world of genetics research and the deeply personal experiences
associated with mental health.

are influenced by both our genetic makeup and the world around us. Their works transform
scientific research into a thought-provoking visual language that engages viewers on an
emotional level.

“Visions of Complexity” is an exploration of the beauty that arises from the fusion of seemingly
disparate worlds. In an era where the boundaries between disciplines are continuously
expanding, this exhibition invites visitors on a journey of introspection and discovery. It
encourages dialogue, understanding, and empathy as we collectively strive to unravel the
mysteries of our shared human experience.
