“Through a ‘leaking’ of time, the west African jungle starts to crystallize. Trees Metamorphose into enormous jewels. Crocodiles encased in second glittering skins lurch down the river. Pythons with huge blind gemstone eyes rear in heraldic poses. Most people flee the area in terror, afraid to face what they cannot understand. But some, dazzled and strangely entranced, remain to drift through this dreamworld forest….” The Crystal World, J.G.Ballard
