My Name is Universe is a book of interviews with internationally renowned personalities through which some of the layers of knowledge included in the Periodic Table are revealed, recreated by Eugenia Balcells in the mural Homage to the Elements.

Who would have thought that a work of art based on a scientific idea could explode like a veritable intellectual Big Bang and take us on a thrilling journey from atoms to galaxies through music, philosophy, art, cinema, chemistry, poetry, theater, dance, astrophysics, education, architecture, painting, quantum physics, religion or mathematics?
My Name is Universe is a book in which science, the arts and the humanities are intertwined, appealing to the transversality and unity of knowledge. A text that cultivates an attitude of wonder at the world around us, the engine of artistic and scientific creation, and that stimulates the reader's curiosity and creativity.
