An abstract from the author's statement
Suppose one were to devise some sort of "lens" that could focus
electrical energy into a single point, much like a magnifying glass
focusing sunlight on a combustible object. In the second case, the heat
generated would be so intense, it could set the object on fire. What
would happen in the first case? That is what I wanted to find out,
since focusing electrical energy into a very small area sets up a field
of such an intense energy, that the structure of matter might be
After two years of research and experimentation (I am an amateur
scientist and entrepreneur), I have designed such a device, capable of
concentrically focusing electrical energy. Then, I
discovered when certain crystals are exposed to this intense electric
field during their growth process, some samples form microscopic
landscapes of extraordinary beauty (at least in the eye of this
Each crystal landscape created in this manner is unique, but highly
unstable and disintegrates after a short time. Consequently, as soon as
a crystal landscape has been formed, I photograph its most
aesthetically pleasing sections, with the film negative becoming the
only record of the new crystal's brief existence.
By varying the strength of the electric field (from 40 000 - 160 000
volts are applied), or the composition of the crystalline solution,
virtually infinite variations of a crystal landscape can be created.
