Images of Sound

These images and video are interference patterns in water and bronze excited by different sound sources, or what is also known as cymatics. Sometimes chaotic, sometimes regular, I have been fascinated for years in making sound seen.


Sound Sight is a cymatic representation of an excerpt from "Breath On The Tyne + Stella", a piece of music by DVA (Linsey Pollak and Tunji Beier). It was shot on a Canon 700D with no effects added - all the movement that you see is a result of what the music source does to the water and medium.
