Records are Written in Stone project statement

After 27 years as a research scientist at  IBM, Marcel Vogel turned his attention from magnetic storage systems to another type of information storage–quartz crystals. In his second act, Vogel designed the now iconic Vogel-cut crystal form and 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 the occult science of crystal healing.
