Dendritic Glass

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

This work represents a macro version (12″ square) of the demonstrator electrochemical glass slide from Axon Technologies, also to be featured in the exhibition.

The central electrode is set to -V, whilst the outer ones are at 24V+. The dendrite grows out form the centre producing tree like formations (plus steamy atmosphere due to heating effect). The time between each image is approximately 1 hour, by the end of today I hope to have a fully grown dendrite.

By changing the relative voltages of the 4 outer plates, it should be possible to steer and shape the dendritic growth.
