  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Do not be afraid. These two gleaming eyes on a dark night are not those of a threatening animal. Behind this disturbing illusion lie two spheres of liquid crystal crossed by a polarized light. The cholesteric nature of this sample leads to the appearance of colorful circles, perfectly concentric, at the origin of this hypnotic dance.

    If we could zoom into these mesomorphic beads, we would see that the molecules deploy a helical structure reminiscent of our cellular Acid.

Alexandre developed a real fascination for these objects that interact with light in such a spectacular manner. “Looking at liquid crystals through the microscope is like looking at the stars through a telescope. The scales are different, but the magic is just the same”. With this peculiar state of matter, his microscope and three years ahead of him, Alexandre found the ideal playground to let his photographic creativity flourish.
