BITS – Juana Gómez’s Anatomical Embroidery

In ALL, BITS by Alex Pedersen

The series Constructal, by Juana Gómez:

“This series explicitly a part of us that we can never see directly, but underlying our daily life processes. These embroideries are based on the repetition of a structure governing the organic and inorganic world and explain the complexity of shapes that arise in nature. Its iconic shape is the tree, which is replicated in our internal organs, nervous and blood systems in the course of rivers and communication networks and transportation. Constructal theory seeks to explain all these phenomena, whose survival depends on its ability to maximize the flow altering its shape” (Translated from Spanish).

To address this gap, she extends her empirical research through multiple mediums including: publications, formal lectures, public speaking events, radio, theatre and photography. In diversifying access to her research, Alex honed a unique set of skills to plan, design and produce events for a wide variety of audiences. To date, she was responsible for several successful lecture series, community events and fundraisers across diverse settings. Most notably, Alex organized and implemented the 2015 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship and was an advisor for the “Free Queen’s” Steering Committee (an initiative encouraging graduates to bring their work to the wider public).
