Ever make a batch of rock candy? Yeah, it’s dumb, I know. But ever thought about pumping an apartment full of crystal-making liquid?

One artist did, and he won a prize for destroying an apartment turning the flat into more of a sharp-and-bumpy.

Last year artist, Roger Hiorns was nominated for a Turner Prize with this art installation, Seizure. For this work, Hiorns pumped 75,000 liters of liquid copper-sulfate into an empty public housing flat in London, which resulted in the rooms being covered with stunning blue crystals.

As you can see, the room looks like a blue flat of solitude. It’s probably not the most comfortable looking pad for a party, but the blue on blue crystals are incredibly trippy.
