Leafcutter John has a great post about making Rochelle Salt, which is piezoelectric, and hence can be used as a contact mic: [http://leafcutterjohn.com/?p=1518 Real Sound Cookery].
My folks [http://blogs.ch.cam.ac.uk/pmr/ Peter] and Judith are both crystallographers, so I thought I'd put them to work in the lab (kitchen) to make some nice crystals.
We followed a pretty similar procedure to Leafcutter John, along with some extra info from the crystal guide [http://www.homepages.ucl.ac.uk/~ucfbanf/general/crystal.htm here]
We had a great opening for [http://www.mo-seph.com/projects/thawingcolours Thawing Colours] at the [http://www.ed.ac.uk/about/museums-galleries/talbot-rice Talbot Rice] gallery. Lots of people came, and nothing broke. See full post for a selection of images and video from the opening:
In the [http://www.mo-seph.com/blog/datavis1 last post], talking about my work with Andreas and [http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/geosciences/people?indv=1578&cw_xml=person.html Marc], we saw how a bit of data visualisation helped to understand why some output was looking funny, and how the choice of classifier contributed to some strange behaviour. In that case, we were really lucky to spot it.
