Inspired by a trip to Salina Turda [salt mine] in October, this month I decided to recreate some of the salt crystallization processes found about its interior. Reducing the macro to the micro, petri dishes, assorted glass vessels, an assemblage of natural materials, and saline solutions of various concentrations produced some beautiful results. The above images document a handful of the experiments in progress.
Further updates to follow. But, in the meantime, take a look at Salina Turda for yourself, via this vimeo short film.
