71.2 results from a repetitive process that consists of submerging carefully crafted copper wire parts into an emulsified nickel solution and introducing a strong electric current. After near-countless repetitions of the process over long intervals of time, nickel accretions begin to grow on the copper part’s surface, in response to the haphazard form of the electro-magnetic field generated within the tank. The initial copper wire parts are crafted so that they emerge from the tank as a collection of jewelry: rings, bangles, necklaces, brooches and earrings.
