CRYSTALLONS 

2013

spatial installation – pre-musical; steel cable, led lights

Size (about 200cm x 250cm x 240cm)

The work embodies as corpus two matrices that constitute the very first work belonging to the series of Sound Floating Landscapes, which was mute at first.

The procedural work depicts figments of the imagination drawn on space. It sets up articulated points in an endless “Combinatoria” and it is meant to be transformed. Its geometry has a periodic origin and the work is accompanied by a text that evokes a science-fictional connotation. 

The word “crystallon” derives from the Greek, cold drop, frozen drop, with its meaning extending to all solids with some degree of transparency. Before the development of X-ray diffraction, crystallography, the study of crystals, was based on their geometry. The crystallography of X-ray is an experimental technique for the study and analysis of materials based on the phenomena of diffraction of the x- rays by solids in crystalline state. Though to this technic specific atoms positions can be measured.
