BEAUTY: Art--Roger Hiorns

In 2008, British artist Roger Hiorns collaborated with Artangel, a London-based arts organization to create a mind-boggling site-specific work called "Seizure."

From Artangel's website:
"'Seizure' was the result of a vast chemical process precipitated by Roger Hiorns in 2008 in what was his most ambitious large-sale work to date and saw him shortlisted for the Turner Prize in 2009.

75,000 litres of copper sulphate solution were pumped into a council flat to create a strangely beautiful and somewhat menacing crystalline growth on the walls, floor, ceiling and bath of an abandoned dwelling."
