The artwork is inspired by films formed by drying cholesteric liquid crystalline suspensions of cellulose nanocrystals where a mosaic texture is observed.
Jury comment: This is a new approach of “LC art” of an artificial texture inspired by a real LC. I would like to close this year with this new attempt.
