A NEW WAY OF SEEING

MORPHOZEN LIVING PATTERNS PROJECT

Gozen Institute, as Turkey’s first and only institution focuses on art, biotechnology and design, with the idea that all existing systems and all lives are interconnected, working for creating a sustainable, circular and better future. 

While creating this future at Gozen Institute, we incorporate biotechnology to discover the genius of life, art to express ourselves, design to communicate, philosophy to open the doors of perception. Thus, in collaboration with nature, we are not only inventing a new world’s sustainable biomaterials; we are also creating new design thinking and production processes. While working to transform the material world, we also care about the transformation of our mind. We believe this is much more meaningful to help both nature and our inner nature.

Our approach reflects the intelligence and magic of the unseen world into the visible world and transforms subtle to matter. We believe that patterns in nature have a universal language that connects us to each other and we also believe that the way we perceive this language has a transformative effect on human beings. If we change the way we perceive the data around us, we can see that art and science actually tell the same thing and that nature is an algorithm technologically coded by a divine mind. 

As Ray Kurzweil said,

“We can ‘go beyond’ the ‘ordinary’ powers of the material world through the power of patterns.”

Morphozen Living Pattern

As Gozen Institute, we believe that everything is connected and we can trace these invisible connections through science and art. With this purpose, our founder Ece Gözen creates a scientific and experimental research, a new design philosophy called “Morphozen” for decoding the nature.

Morphozen brings together biology, alchemy, patterns in nature, morphogenesis and the interconnectedness of everything, it represents a return to the primordial spiral, the Omega Point, where everything is one.

The importance of Morphozen Living Patternsbio-art project is that Ece Gözen created living patterns like Turing patterns with nature’s most advanced technology; biology. Gözen, biologically produced Turing patterns that before created by artificial intelligence based on Alan Turing’s pattern model by decoding nature’s algorithms and connections.

The Turing pattern is a concept introduced by English mathematician Alan Turing, known as the pioneer of artificial intelligence and computer science, in a 1952 paper titled “The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis”. It explains how ‘spontaneous and random’ patterns in nature, such as stripes and spots, can arise naturally and autonomously on animals through mathematical equations.

Likewise, Ece Gözen accidentally created the Turing pattern –generated by computers– on biomaterials developed in Gozen Institute™ laboratory with the technique that she discovered. As a result of this coincidence, spontaneous patterns on a living structure were appeared in our laboratory and we presented them in bio-art form to show the connections between artificial intelligience and biological intelligience.

As Gozen Institute™ we believe that discovery might explain how patterns are generated in nature and Alan Turing’s morphogenesis theory. Because within the Morphozen, the Turing Model, which can be explained by computer simulation of two virtual chemicals that usually react and emit, was shown by our founder Ece Gözen on a living structure by using biology itself.

“Morphozen can help unravel the language of ‘patterns’ in the nature and perceive the consciousness behind it. This understanding and perceiving enable humans to thrive on our planet sustainably and harmoniously.”

Within this bio-art concept, Morphozen not only promotes the sustainability of art, but also aims to enable us to rethink and interpret the connections between contrasts, while also acting as a bridge between;
