Description

This book is a visual extravaganza spinning off from the Cancer and Human Evolution Project, as exhibited at the Obra Social Caja Madrid. Bringing together various disciplines, images of science, architecture and painting relate to the analysis of shapes as a source of knowledge - bone tissues that hold the mysteries of human evolution, architectural shapes that reflect historical and social developments and pictorial shapes that elucidate the spiritual.

Essays on evolutionary science, a map of the Congolese town of Musumba (laid out in the shape of a turtle), plans and sketches of bony architectural forms, cellular paintings and more come together on a meandering yet compelling osteo-path.
