MEMORY CRYSTALS by Barbara Galazzo
This mosaic piece is located in the sculpture garden and named “Memory crystals” – after the crystals used as storing devices in the Superman films. Researchers now claim that using ultra-fast lasers, we can now encode a piece of quartz with 5D information in the form of nano-structured dots separated by only one millionth of a meter. It is made of painted tempered glass, cement and grout.
