Crystal City 004 (installation, 2013) A new project of the Crystal City series.
There is another invisible world in which we live each and every day. It is made up of electronic equipment, programs, networks, media and information. A city that grows like a crystal, each individual element within it automatically coming together and infinitely expanding and spreading according to a internally set rhythm and logic. It is transparent, light, invisible and lacking in volume, but yet still projecting a world of unparalleled reality. A place considered to be our spiritual home.
