SAN FRANCISCO, CA- Root Division presents Permutation Unfolding, A group exhibition examining the realm of process in relationship to natural systems of self-organization and transformation. Permutation Unfolding introduces art practices that result from processes of intuitive facture, repetition, and chance, created organically through accumulation.
Biomorphic forms or suggestions of other natural formations frequently emerge as a result of the artists’working processes, including macroscopic or microscopic life forms, neural networks, macromolecular or cellular structures, and geologic formations.
The essence and beauty of each piece is the equilibrium between what is intended and what is achieved: a process that results neither from control over these forces nor surrender to them, but rather from immersion in them.
