crystelling Crystelling
an open lab to grow crystals with piezoelectric intra-active frequencies
2018, Brussels, San Fransico, Orléans

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
INTRO
bolwerK will combine parascientific history, anthropology, and technology to familiarize ourselves to the electromagnetic spectrum and to how radio and farming metaphors intertwine. During this open lab, we will grow crystals, and experiment with their physical, accoustic, electric and electromagnetic properties transmitting and receiving signals from the body to the mind (of others) & intra-acting frequencies. While seeding the crystals, we will think critically about the contemporary cooptation and privatization of the electromagnetic sphere and was is the power of electricity.

HOW TOxk

COOK
-
get pure products
natriumcarbonate need to be sealed, 
it will naturally turn to bicarbonate by reacting with th emositure in the air
