Eran Gilat SIGNED COPY: Life Science

Eran Gilat is a neuroscientist and an avid fine art photographer. His research focuses on the development of an innovative cure for epilepsy. Life Science reflects his long lasting confrontation with biological tissues, contemplating issues of materialism, erotica, and mortality, corresponding with the complicated and intriguing category of "animal reminder" in the visual arts. His extended Life Science series also negotiates the immoral reasoning behind various shades of human violence, insecurity, and exile. We tend to describe violent human behavior as animal-like, bestially revolting, associated with violent animal behavior. However, the animal world is dictated purely by survival rules arising from inexorable, harsh selection processes. "No one will consider the employment of essential measures for the preservation of the species to be cruel; this was previously emphasized by Charles Darwin and recent eminent scholars," states Gilat. He believes that, in many aspects, we are inferior to the animal world in terms of moral conduct, while evidently being superior in our intellectual competence. The book will include an essay in neuro-esthetics, focusing on the "animal reminder" genre in photography.
