Crystal Study

Crystal Study is installation which turns non-perceivable process of crystallization in artistic light installation. The earth is developed/changed in decade. It is even still developing in every minutes, every second. We can say it is crystallization. But for human being it is difficult to sense the phenomena such a global warming in real time. Because it is too long time scale and too small change. From long ago human tried to observe such intangible environmental phenomena. For example Stormglass(aka FitzRoy glass), which developed in 19th century for weather forecast. This device is react with chronological change from temperature, atmospheric electro magnetic noise of environment, etc which changing in long time scale that human can’t observe or feel clearly. In this project translate crystallization process in Stromglass to human perceivable phenomenon as aesthetic way with help with modern technology.
