Yesterday, I blogged about a simple classroom science experiment that turns an eggshell into a geode-like object by using copper sulfate. In the comments, Captain Womble suggested that we check out this amazing work of art by Roger Hiorns.
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
In 2008, Hiorns sealed off a bedroom in a London apartment building and flooded it with copper sulfate. After a month, he removed the residue and then cut the entire room out of the building.
Hiorns calls the work Seizure. He was surprised by how the crystals formed over the walls and objects in the bedroom. Hiorns says:
To some degree, we got it wrong in terms of what we were expecting. But we got it wrong on the right side of being wrong, I think.
I really like that phrasing.
