Cryptocristallin, audiovisual installation, 2021.
Akin to a supernova, a celestial body, radioactive material, a single-celled organism or a cryptographic algorithm, Cryptocristallin displays the inside of a geode formed by cooled volcanic gases. The hidden details of its internal structure have been procedurally generated from signs on its surface. The six minute seamless loop reveals the volcanic rock’s hollow cavities lined with crystals and minerals by exploring its strata from all angles and through the sonification of its composition.
