How gems and minerals may have been formed. Featuring my collection of minerals and gems together with the collaboration of Cran Cowan – UV lighted minerals @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/28617364@N04/
Here are the steps I took to produce this piece:
- Made with CHAOSCOPE software images that resemble the target mineral photograph previously taken (size-color-shape)
- Took the image and the target mineral photograph through a morphing program and produced a video rendition of the transformation.
- There were several other “attractor/chaos” images made that were morphed among themselves and then re-morphed into the gem/mineral target.
- Then gathered all the technical – chemical composition for the making and assembling of the descriptions.
- The process was tedious, time consuming and error prone (re-edits), but because I love my stones and minerals it was a real pleasure seeing how it could have happened
Enjoy the show,
