At the Museum of Modern Art of Toluca, State of Mexico, it hosted the most recent exposition of the artistic work of Miguel Peraza, from April to July 2023. This exhibition is a journey through almost five decades of work that brings together different disciplines such as drawing, photography and sculpture, where you can appreciate the science of quantum physics, geometric and algebraic thinking; The philosophy of universal human consciousness and the human spirit with which the artist emits a message through each of the elements that make it up in discrete intertwined and superimposed quantities that emit the full and voids of his sculpture, following the system of quantum mechanics.

Fractal Luxuria exhibition, had the theoretical participation of texts of the distinguished scientists and humanists: Dr. Elsa Chavira Martínez, Maestra Gabriela Coppola, Dr. Alejandro Pedroza Meléndez, Dr. Miguel Mayorga Rojas, Dr. Francisco Aguilar Rebolledo, and Dr. Enrique Canchola Martínez.

Miguel Peraza is a Mexican sculptor who has been creating sculptures for over 45 years. His works include more than 80 public sculptures and 1,500 easel works. One of his works is the Cubo de Guízar, which is a sculpture made of aluminum and is 7 meters tal . Another one of his works is called El navegante, which is made of aluminum and bronze and is 5.5 meters tall² Peraza's sculptures are known for their dynamic structures and fractal components, which create objective and subjective perceptions that combine the concrete and the imaginary. His sculptures are also constructed using a quantum mechanics system, with a dynamic orbital method in three dimensions, where the message is emitted by each of the elements that make it up in discrete quantities, which in quantum physics are called quanta. The light emitted by the wavelengths of the colors used corresponds to well-defined frequencies of the mental quanta that construct different emotions. The different bodies that make up Peraza's sculptures have fractal components; that is, larger and smaller parts of the same element, while space is generated through full and empty movements that overlap to build objective and subjective perceptions to achieve a linear combination of two states, the concrete and the imaginary.

Miguel Peraza, born in Mexico City in 1959. He has created more than 300 works of small format and 34 monumental works, with many monuments along Mexico and Colombia, mainly in universities. He has also participated in 28 individual and 2 group expositions, displaying his sculptural proposal in several countries. Some of his sculptures are related to geometric algebra and quantum theory, such as El navegante (Aluminum and bronze, 5.5 m, Institute of Geography, UNAM, 2013) and Cubo de Guízar (Aluminum, 7 m, Biomedical University Rafael Guisar and Valencia, Xalapa Ver, 2016).

His sculptures are characterized by their dynamic structures, their use of color and light, and their integration with the environment. He has also explored the themes of space, time, movement, and energy in his works. He is influenced by the theories of Maturana and Varela, who proposed the concept of autopoiesis, which means self-creation or self-production. He considers his sculptures as autopoietic systems that interact with the observers and generate mental images in different sensory modalities.
