After working at IBM as a research scientist for 27 years, Marcel Vogel turned his attention from magnetic disks and magnetic strips to another type of information storage system–quartz crystals. After designing the now iconic Vogel-cut crystal form, he travelled throughout the US and Europe, giving lectures and workshops on its use. Records are Written in Stone uses Vogel’s workshops, papers, and interviews as a starting point for a series of works that engage the mysteries and aesthetics of an occult science.
