Crystal Birth by Emanuele Fornasier

Italian student Emanuele Fornasier is documenting his exceptional chemistry project where he is exploring chemical reactions and metal structures. Crystal Birth is a timelapse video of 18 electrocrystallizations involving electrical current to pass through a metal dipped into a chemical solution creating a reaction where the metal is deposited from the solution onto the metal surface. This process can take hours or sometime days in order to generate a crystal. As a result of the slow process and the layer by layer built, every crystal formed is bound to be unique, one of a kind.
