EXHIBITION REVIEW: VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR
INTERVIEW: PATRICK LYSAGHT
Frost Crystals - Photographs of Random Spontaneous Order on my windshield in the mountains of New Mexico
How can random water vapor molecules spontaneously emerge as geometrically precise frost crystals?
This contradicts what we know about our world of increasing entropy marked by aging and deterioration, where time is a one-way street. What's going on?
For the molecules involved, crystallization is indeed, low entropy, but the process of forming well-ordered structures like stars, frost and people gives off heat to the environment with a net increase in entropy. 

I try to capture this paradox of exquisite structures spontaneously emerging in our world of increasing randomness and disorder. My images represent lyrical portraits of entropy!
