Evolution means transformation in the congenital phenotypic characteristics taking place in natural populations in the course of time. What matters is the way in which genetic diversity forms. This is either supplied by other populations or from within a population with different mechanism called "mutation".
Mutation or synthetic defect ... happens as a result of unknown or incongruous factors in its context with no predictable function. But it is the most important factor in genetic diversity as a raw material for the natural selection process and eventually, evolution.
Accidental occurrence that is considered by itself a defect potentially provides an opportunity which can lead to the creation of a new type or evolution in case of compatibility with current situation.
Mutation sometimes functions as a kind of arrhythmia in the rhythmic trend of the desired field and finally leads to the appearance of a different kind of rhythm.
Humanism, the incongruity of mutation causes, ambiguity in result and function and incompatibility with intelligent design can be assumed as referential factors for the manifestation of evolution.
If we generalize the theory of evolution to the socio-cultural evolution of human kind, the diversity of cultural narratives will act as raw material for natural selection. It can be regarded as an introduction for coming into existence of a new kind of reading and culture. Among the important factors that make this diversity and bring about cultural differences, we should refer to the appearance of events and accidents changing the usual trend of the society functioning as mutation on the ground of human's genetics.
Factors such as:
- generalizing the theory of evolution from biological and sociological fields to artistic ones,
- representing approaches of the evolution theory, and
- visualizing the turning points and the horizons of this event from the past to the future, something beyond the modulus of the engaged scientists
Can be regarded as a starting point for the artist in order to dream up and develop his/her ideas.

Mutation or a combination defect, is a result of unknown or heterogeneous factors which do not have predictable functions, yet they are the most important feature in the genetic variations as raw materials for natural procedures and evolution in particular.
An occurrence that provides a possibility which, in case of agreeing with the situation, leads to the creation of a new, consistent type.
Mutation is evaluative through several aspects:
• the context and origin of mutation
Which is considered as the Plato period or the season of famine
• immersion and appearance of the mutation
Which, in this exhibition, is an entry for creating the artworks
• the result and function of mutation
Which could be studied along with the nature's selection mechanism.
The emersion and appearance of mutations in the field of biology, sociology and art and culture would form and create the history of human civilization. It establishes a new rhythm like an arrhythmia in the movement.
The artists would not only represent, but they would picture an imagination which makes the immersion of mutation a close thing to the manifestation of the work which, in other words, makes the process of creating an artwork, the result of heterogeneous and ambiguities factors regardingly.
