Natural world themes of Systema Naturae are explored further in the third installment titled Aeris.

As our atmosphere, air conducts the passage of light, acting as a medium that allows people to interpret the physical world in color. An indirect response to this exchange is the human perception of reality, and the creation of art to express these perceptions. Systema Naturae: Aeris takes inspiration from these naturally occuring systems, and the ideas drawn from air itself: flight, freedom, and infinite possibilities.
