With a background in science, music, and art, Argentinian artist Gustavo Díaz is dedicated to a truly interdisciplinary approach to understanding the world. Inspired by such diverse subjects as Ilya Prigogine’s chaos theory (referenced in the title of this work), non-Euclidian geometry, and the behavior of hyper-complex systems, he comes at the world of art through science. His objects and drawings visualize complex theories from the realms of astronomy, mathematics, physics, and philosophy, thereby combining the aesthetic world of art with other theoretical disciplines. In 2001, Díaz received the Banco Ciudad Foundation Prize from the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, and in 2002 he co-founded NOUS, a Center of Art and Design dedicated to interdisciplinary scientific research. Díaz’s work has been shown in both group and solo exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museo Valenciano de la Ilustración y la Modernidad, Valencia; as well as other exhibition spaces throughout the United States and Argentina.
