Inspired by Buddhist philosophy, Crystallized Illusions is a collection of 99 pieces created through a generative process. Three variations of this process were made to correspond to the categories of illusions as described by Zhiyi (538–597 CE), the fourth patriarch of the T’ien-t’ai (or Tí Taî) Buddhist tradition. Each process was used to created 33 distinct images.

Each image has a complexity attribute that correlates to the final image's scale, and this is denoted in each image's name (1-33). Images in each set grow from 1500 x 1500 pixels to 6300 x 6300 pixels, and they are all consistent with one another (for example, Thought and Desire 7, Innumerable 7, and True Nature 7 all share the same resolution).

MEDIA PERMANENCE: Files and metadata information is redundantly stored on Arweave (https://app.ardrive.io/#/drives/179a2d11-b056-4429-9112-de7a05009167?name=Crystallized-Illusions).
