Created by Jayson Haebich, The Crystallisation Event explores a speculative future in which the endless digitisation and quantification of data has caused information to become supersaturated and begin a process of crystallisation. The project is presented as a speculative museum exhibit showing future artefacts from this post crystallised data world.
Presented at the end of the year MFA show at Goldsmiths University, the installation includes a number of artefacts that show both the physical results of the crystallisation process as well as digital information crystallising. The narrative describes how a crystalline structure is forming over our planet, emerging from digital data to create a new anthropogenic layer over technology.
