    This Art + Science project is based on the architecture of the Reichstag Dome. Architects Foster + Partners have generously entrusted the architectural plans of the dome for the project artworks. The project's "Team of Science" informs the "Evolutionary Spiral" concept with precise information. Read Less

Evolution Spiral promotes an understanding of evolution as a universal force that elevates knowledge- as if on a spiral stairway- from past, to present, to future. This project communicates forward thinking ideas on Darwinism, Biodiversity, Climate Change, Political Science, and Technology to an international audience. The project's ideas culminate for an installation atop the perfect palimpsest, Germany's Reichstag.

An exhibition comprised of a series of limited-edition graphic prints, incorporating science, is to accompany the installation. The exhibit will be held at a notable location where audience members can view the artworks while perusing an onsite library of team member's publications. 

Evolution Spiral is a co-creation between artist mp Warming and an international team of scientists and scholars whose expertise informs the artwork. The concept for the project springs from the architecture of the Reichstag Dome, designed by Norman Foster as a symbol for democracy. 

The Reichstag installation would feature eighteen white flags, each depicting a graphic of a team member's ear. The installation promotes Berlin as a center for innovation with a nod to the Dada and Fluxus art movements. The absurdity of the ears in installation is meant to convey the joyful city Berlin has become. The flags also represent the surrender of the ego to a state of authentic listening, envisioning a democracy where everyone is heard.

The Evolution Spiral team reaches across the disciplines of art, science, architecture and the humanities to revisit the spiral form of the Reichstag Dome as a metaphor for evolution, and in so doing, hopes to engage broad audiences in an exploration of our world's diversity and the importance of protecting it.
