The research of scientist Dr. Masaru Emoto has long been a source of inspiration and fascination for me. Dr. Emoto’s studies have proven that water molecules consistently change their structural forms to that of beautiful crystals or deformed structures depending on whether they are exposed to positive or negative thoughts and environments. Water, complex and multi-dimensional is as much a “being” as we are. As our bodies are 70%, our brains 90%, and much of our planet water, honoring this discovery would truly impact our collective health and environment if we were conscious of the water we come in contact with. The two phrases that Dr. Emoto found water strongly responded to are: “Thank-you” and “I love you”.

Such is the basis of the eerily timed Crystals of Transformation project by multimedia artist Fuchsia Lin. I first met her in a fashion show context, although she is really more of a costumer. And photographer. And sculptor. You get the idea. Anyhow, she was rewarded RACC's Professional Development Grant to develop her photography art, which she's supplementing with a Kickstarter-like fundraising campaign through USAProjects.org. Like everything I've seen her do, it's utterly fascinating:

She's only got one week left to meet her fundraising goal. Just sayin'.
