Reversion is an unknown alchemical process: Alchemy usually considers the transformation of a raw, natural ore into a «noble», purified material.
Here it is from manufactured molecules that pure metals are extracted. Stones or metals are immersed in chemical baths to grow crystals of silver, copper or lead.
Like plants, landscapes or organs, metallic efflorescence grows throughout the exibition, bringing this geological process to a sensible, perceptible scale.
