Crystal-Eyes is a project that combines ancient wisdom with travel, healing, painting, cinematography, and music. Nick, Alex, and Lawrence  will set out on a journey, collecting crystals along the gem trails of these beautiful United states.  Each crystal/ gem will correspond directly to the 12 constellations of the western zodiac.  Field recordings of rivers, animals, fires, winds and musical instruments will be taken as well.  These recordings will replicate the seven healing frequencies that are emitted by our seven sacred planets.  These frequencies also correspond to the seven chakras in the human body.  All of this magic will be inclosed in a geodesic dome that will be constructed in the near future.  The healing chamber will mirror the microcosmic and macrocosmic magical realms of our solar system and universe.  The dome will be painted with colors that correspond to the various crystals and healing sounds.  A film of the journey will be also shown at the exhibition space.

Goals:  We are conducting this project with the intention of educating, healing, and inspiring people through a channel of ancient wisdom and magic.
