HABITUS – A manual
MAY 2021 / The HABITUS Manual contains instructions on how to recreate the quartz crystal shape using materials already present in most homes: a potato and a small pairing knife. HABITUS is inspired by René Just Haüy’s crystal models from the collection of Teylers Museum in Haarlem.
Consider this piece by mail as the first part of my exhibition HABITUS at 37PK in Haarlem, which is still closed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The manual will be delivered by mail on request.
