The exhibition project «Similarity Index», dedicated to fate and the mythology that gave rise to it, has opened in the House of Culture GES-2.
«The Earth Similarity Index is a scale reflecting the physical resemblance of celestial bodies to our planet that could theoretically be used for an initial evaluation of the suitability of a given planet for humans and other living organisms. Taking the Earth as its standard, the Earth Similarity Index is calculated according to a complex formula that was developed by an international group of biologists, chemists, astronomers, and planetary scientists. It serves, among other things, as a means of estimating the likelihood of various scenarios for the evolution of life in all of its forms.
The scientific approach to the planet Earth as a holistic organism serves as a point of departure for Similarity Index: the artistic works featured in this exhibition pair scientific approaches with the subjective perspectives of individuals or of communities—theories and facts are combined with poetic, symbolic, intuitive, political, or speculative material.»
The exhibition is dedicated to the personal relationship between man and the environment. Visitors can see a multimedia installation by Evgenyi Gavrilov, made in collaboration with curator Evgenyi Chaika. They were inspired by the work of meteorologists. The data of the state of the soil, air temperature, the presence of water in the atmosphere  give people information about the earth.
