In the show Kepler-186f, Life in Another Earth , Macu Morma continues to explore her concept of The Organic Code, the cannon that she believes, operates as a catalyst of our multi-Universal existence as the ultimate essence of Beauty, Math and Science, beyond the frontiers of current understanding.
In an effort to illustrate her hypothesis, she proposes LifE in another Earth, specifically in the recently discovered planet Kepler-186f, considered to be the Earth's cousin because of its vital similarities. With this purpose she shows photography of our planet, taken in distant places and manipulated analogue and digitally by means of fractals, textures, light prisms and microscopic and macroscopic captures, building up an allegory of this parallel world.
With this aim, the show insightfully articulates visual and sound elements that match the universality of these ideas, in an effort to reveal the cardinal directions of galactic activity and the centripetal energies that define our particular destiny.
Inspired in the crossroads of art, science and spirituality, the artist appeals to instincts and sensitivity as avenues for input of higher realities, forerunners of human evolution. Obsessed to capture this ethereal order that structures coherence, or what she recalls as The Organic Code, Macu Moma's works might differ in shapes and techniques, but they are loyal to a pronounced style, engaged with light and in love with subtle complexities such as colors personalities and soul dynamics .
The ever-increasing possibilities that innovative materials and technology breakthroughs allow fosters her curiosity and discerning nature, letting her produce highly sensorial visual experiences. Wandering around her expressions enables to visualize a mirror effect to see the whole in the fragment and the fragment in the whole, perceiving patterns of the organic code and the golden ratio, candidly astonished by the harmony, equilibrium and symmetry that nature wit provides us with in so many aspects of our existence.
Her praxis overwhelms science with its generous imagination, braiding aesthetic luminous images with sociological backgrounds, in a garden of spheres, lights, colors, curves and cuts, which looking familiar wrap us up in a frequency as real as abstract.
The show also includes her earlier video artwork LifE = mc2, in which she identifies Life with Energy, establishing that Life does not get created nor destroyed, but transformed or transferred from one form to another, based upon the law of conservation of energy over time of current physics. The video artwork shows a transition of images that shows the life of a child, from his first glimpse of life until gaining consciousness of himself.
Related to Plato's Theory of Ideas, the work goes beyond the idea of LIFE. Plato distinguishes between two modes of reality, one which he calls intelligible, the Kosmos Noetos , and another that he called sensitive, Horat Kosmos . Platonic ideas are not mental contents, but they relate to mental contents designated by the concept, and expressed through language. These objects or essences remain regardless of whether or not they are thought, they are something different to thought, unique, eternal and immutable.
Macu Moma's LifE theory elaborates upon Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity, published one hundred and one years earlier, in 1905, by considering LifE as Energy in the equation E = mc ², in which the mass is related to energy, for an object viewed from a reference point which is in rest. For this reason, the work includes 475 still frames, in overlay transition. The conversion of mass to energy refers to the matter in radiation, further developed in the quantum field theory, that in the work is allegorically shown by colors.
If total amount of energy of an isolated system remains constant in time, by identifying Life with Energy, theories of reincarnation that different cultures and ontological approaches have proclaimed from the origins of humankind are shown as theoretically compatible with science, specifically with the physic law of conservation of energy.

The work is very effective in conveying feelings and excites the audience, revering the cosmic code of organic shapes as the root of the human concept of beauty.
Macu Moma co-creates seeking cosmic validation, which formal empathy with nature easily seduces the viewer, invited to navigate through her cerebral fantasy, heading towards fascinating suggestions and sensitive melodies for the senses.
Her particular ability to create alternative realities pursuing the continuum flux that rules the micro and macrocosmos, inherent to logic but of an incorporeal nature, helps discovering thrilling connections when transferring it to the social dimension. This strong commitment with the multifaceted development of contemporary human being cognitive faculties shows her far-sighted approach to art.
Interested in both, intangible production and tangible imagery, besides her net-art boards vision, time-based art and digital and hand- processing colored photography projects, as an outsider plastic artist, Macu Moma keeps researching into different mediums, including writing, drawing, painting, woodcarving, metal and porcelain sculpture, 3D modeling and printing, bioart, experimental sound, arduino robotics and jewelry.
