Can we see the sound?
Welcome to my world of Cymatics photography, where I use experimental techniques to capture the beauty of sound vibrations on water.
Sound is a powerful force that permeates every aspect of our lives, and yet it remains invisible to the naked eye. Through the art of Cymatics, we can now see sound in a way that was once only possible in our imagination.
My images were created using a homemade Cymatics machine in my studio in Oia. Cymatics is the study of wave phenomena and vibration, and it demonstrates the vibratory nature of matter and the transformational power of sound.
As Hans Jenny, a Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist once said, "Nothing rests, everything is in motion and everything vibrates." Matter, energy, and even spirit are simply varying rates of vibration. My photography captures the essence of this vibratory world, showcasing the beauty and power of sound.
Through the use of Tibetan singing bowls and other resonant objects, I capture the soothing harmonic tones that are produced. As resonant frequencies change the shape of the object, it generates Faraday waves in the water. The result is a stunning visual representation of sound waves, with breaking waves and fizzy droplets that dance in harmony with the frequency of the sound.
My Cymatics photography invites you to explore the infinite manifestations of vibration and frequency that exist in our world, from the highest rates of vibration that appear motionless to the lowest levels of vibration that create slow, peaceful movements. As you gain a deeper understanding of vibration, frequency, harmony, and resonance, you will unlock new levels of self and environmental mastery.
So come and explore the world of Cymatics photography with me, and discover the beauty of sound in a whole new way.
