GOOD VIBRATIONS Ana Mićković (1991, Serbia) All things in the universe are forms of energy and have their own resonance and effect on the environment. This includes crystals. ‘In a crystal we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of the crystal, it is nonetheless a living being’. (Tesla,1900) Nikola Tesla declared this concept as the key to understanding the universe and proved how certain forms of energy can alter the vibrational resonance of other forms of energy. The essence of crystals and chakras has informed the ‘Good Vibrations’ collection. Their qualities and their geometry have been key. They have influenced the process of shaping and manipulating the garments and fabrics. The designs aim to be receptive to the ele- ments, and to sensitively express and harness the fluctuating forces of the natural crystal world.
