“From a distance they appear clear and orderly, yet upon closer inspection, the eyes become disoriented by the many details and visual stimuli,” says Drummen. “That moment of being able to take it all in or not is explored time and time again.”
These beautiful circles and swirls are meticulously constructed out of sometimes gaudy crystals individually, where the whole is more than the sum of the parts.
