In his e book The Biosphere and The Noosphere, Vladimir Vernadsky elaborated on the Noosphere as a brand new evolutionary stage within the improvement of the Biosphere when the human-and-nature interplay could be consciously balanced.
In his projection of the long run he thought of the emergence of the Noosphere as a vital evolutionary step wanted for preserving and reconstructing the Biosphere within the curiosity of humanity as a single entity. In our time of environmental disaster and deep rooted uncertainty in regards to the future, Vernadsky’s optimistic premise of the Noosphere could look like a stark distinction to the zeitgeist of the up to date period, the place collective consciousness is peppered with critique on a solely anthropocentric worldview and the environmental hazards of mankind’s exercise.
We dwell at a really particular time within the historical past of humanity – a time of growing ecological disaster the place our survival because the human race is threatened by the development of local weather change and depletion of pure sources. The Noosphere, as Vernadksy thought of it, envelops the world as a sphere of thought that has emerged as a consequence of the growing complexity of human consciousness, a pure end result of organic phenomenon. The existence of the sphere is indeniable, but its nature and consequence for humanity is an exploratory angle of Traversing The Noosphere.
This exhibition calls consideration to views on the unprecedented price of human improvement of our occasions, our quickly evolving relationship with the world round us and our altering sense of self in relation to the pure world.

Niyeti Chadha Kannal
Niyeti Chadha Kannal’s works, in some ways are a direct consequence of lens primarily based wanderings into the spectacular labyrinths of rising metropolises like New York, London and Bangalore in addition to renderings on paper of the possibility materialisations of architectural monstrosities encountered by the flaneur on the unholy intersections of disparate supplies, sensibilities and occasions. What shines by way of the works of the Bangalore-based artist Niyeti Chadha Kannal is a seek for the elusive and the visionary within the slowly-yet-surely transitioning purlieus of our city landscapes.
Diptej Vernekar is fascinated with exploring the connection between objects, his environment, the house and nature which is in a relentless state of flux. His work brings collectively fragments of those disconnected verses, stitching them collectively into visible poems. The present physique of drawings revolves across the weathering of ideas, the place summary recollections get accrued and translate into obscure species and the way magnificence and its contradiction co-exist, creating an environment of its personal.
