Thank you for your interest in Subconscious Communication/Biological Instinct.  Its rich complexities of geopolitical realities and their socio-psychological impact have been subjects of a four month study and focus for events considering art, science and interpersonal communications in their broadest sense.  The exhibit and associated events probed how knowledge of structural laws of nature, the scientific process and stewardship of them can aid us in social decision making to ensure sustainable natural and institutional systems.

The tensions between the individual and geopolitical forces constitute artist Nikki Anand’s inspiring, asthetic, exploration of how a harmonic balance of these tensions is within our grasp.  The exhibition is a tool to open discussion on navigating today's profoundly changing world.  To confront the daunting task of building new frameworks for conscious evolution, mindful stewardship, a collective vision, and a road map into the deep future are required.

The IGM Art Gallery, our colleagues in other USC departments and leaders in the surrounding community are identifying the challenges associated with this fast paced, global change and seeking change management solutions. The images in this exhibit provide intuitive information on the spirit of creation and the fortitude to deal not only with specific challenges, but with complex challenges requiring multi-tasking, mindful collaboration and care giving at every step.   

To do this collectively, we need a sound grasp of where we were and where we are as individuals, biological families, institutions, communities and ultimately the global family.  Honoring the past, confronting what's real, and using existing resources creatively equips us to imagine and invent a bright future for coming generations.  Nikki’s art and discussions on it have aided us in passing this legacy to the next generation.  CLICK to see scientists and visitors using the gallery.
