LIFE SCIENCE by Eran Gilat
Eran Gilat is a Neuroscientist and an avid Fine Art Photographer. Eran's research focus on the development of innovative cure for Epilepsy. His "Life Science” project 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 negotiates also the immoral reasoning for various toning of human violence, insecurity and exile. We tend to describe violent humankind behavior as an animal like beastly revolting one, associated with animal violent behavior. But the animal world is dictated purely by survival rules due to inexorable, harsh selection process. No one will consider the employment of the essentials measures for the preservation of the species as cruel ones; this was previously emphasized by Charles Darwin and recent eminent scholars" states Eran. Eran believes that in many aspects we are inferior to the animal world moral conduct, while evidently being superior in our intellectual competence.
