Crystal Constellations



This series of large format digital prints on acetate of high res scans of photographic contact sheets of delicate Epsom salt crystals grown in petri dishes.The result was a constellation of fictional crystalized planets. Each grown in an afternoon, admired, illuminated and dissolved. Washed down the drain where the salt will go on to form new crystals in other places and times. What are left in these prints developed in a home DIY darkroom are shadows of the ephemeral bodies that represent just one incarnation of an eternal cycle.
