via designboom, this robotic arm installation by artist Jonathan Schipper prints out tiny salt-crystal strucutures that look like cities rising from dunes. And if this all weren’t piquing visitor’s interest enough, it’s set up so the installation can be viewed from a hot-tub, so you can get a jet-water massage while salt-pillared cities (or interpretations of Lot’s wife) rise around you. Named ‘detritus’, the installation is on display at the boiler in brooklyn until november 24th of this year.
Check out this video of the printer in action:
