About this Artwork
In his Morphogenetic fields series, Janiak examines the visible manifestation of the essence of various substances. Every entity in the universe contains its own signature—a data field containing every physical characteristic, environmental influence, memory, and experience known to it. That is its morphogenetic field. Every dandelion would have a similar morphogenetic field because in addition to containing the information describing each particular dandelion, a universal data set also exists describing dandelion-ness or the essence of all dandelions that ever were. To examine the topic of morphogenetic fields, Janiak employed existing scientific methods of reducing various substances to their crystalline foundation then photographed them in that primordial, crystalline state.
