Jury comment: This texture corresponds to the mesophase formed by a chiral bent-core liquid crystal compound. It represents characteristic defects of one of the chiral mesophases, the twist grain boundary A (TGBA), where different color domains arise due to different twist states. The microphotography is highly attractive from an aesthetic and artistic point of view, very suggestive and somehow shows the other side of sensory perception - "realities and interests” - that was highlighted on the occasion of June 2022 ILCS liquid crystal picture.
