CARLOS RUIZ

A morphologically equal stone and bean but separated by an abyss: the border between the living and inert, organic and inorganic matter. What separates these two worlds? We could delimit it by matter. Organic is composed of carbon and formed by molecules with carbon-hydrogen or carbon-carbon bonds. Instead, inorganic matter does not have carbon-carbon links. But a stone can be composed of organic matter. Another limit can be life, but organic matter may be dead and nowadays we can create life in laboratories. This work reflects based on a seemingly absurd comparison between a bean and a stone.
