In his 1904 paper Flüssige Kristalle, German physicist Otto Lehman first described the liquid, flowing crystals which occupy a state of matter between conventional liquids and solid crystals. Mechanically, liquid crystals behave as a fluid but contain the optical properties of solid crystals, causing the polarization of light that would become the basis for LCD technology. At a basic level, Gabriel Esteban Molina captures the fluidity and reflectivity of organic materials in their technological applications. His works continually reflect on the psychological, social, and spiritual values attributed to the patterns of digital screens.
