Computer or nature? Who's still sure he can tell the difference? Do we still want to be able to distinguish it?

We are already used to being able to produce almost realistic images of reality with computers. But the fact that the earth produces structures that one would expect from a computer is a surprise to many. But take a look at the presented motifs - is the Earth itself a gigantic computer, as in Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"? How would the term reality define itself then?

The pictures show the minerals as they have grown naturally, in the colours in which they appear in sunlight. Some of them were found by me in the Valais mountains. My central creative element is the lighting, especially the play with light and shadow and the "taming" of the sometimes extremely strongly reflecting crystal surfaces.
