Proportio

Presented from May until November 2015 at the Palazzo Fortuny in Venice by the Axel & May Vervoordt Foundation and Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia, the exhibition Proportio examines the ways we experience proportion in our lives and the complex universe in which we live. By presenting wide-ranging and diverse expressions found in art, nature, physics, economics, history, science, music, medicine and many other subjects, the study of proportion uncovers the natural patterns that are used to create everything in the material world. Throughout the course of known human history, the knowledge of proportions has been applied across civilizations for thousands of years. The sophisticated knowledge of sacred geometry, and the golden ratio in particular, was considered highly advanced and closely linked to secretive spiritual wisdom and religious traditions.
