Caliche Crystals (2019) is an audiovisual performance that enlarges a real-time view of the dynamic and symmetrical crystal growth of saltpetre under a microscope. It provides a reflection on the different sedimentation levels of this non-renewable chemical compound, and the mystery of its unique natural formation over millennia. The video projection of a real-time microscopical performance, where a myriad of compositions will develop in a water drop, will enable the public to experience an enlarged molecular process, in dialogue with a sound improvisation and the architecture of the Stavanger Concert Hall.
