#9 Basket work1

These electron microscope pictures, reminiscent of man-made baskets or children's blocks, show micron scale balls formed from cubic salt crystals which have been forced to form in spheres. You can see the inner structure tearing them apart, and the impossibility of forming true spheres from true crystals, and yet somehow they are beginning to do it. The nanoscale is where our idea of our ability simply to hew images from materials meets the reality of the material itself, and these pictures express that. - Rox Middleton
