Cymatics is a kinetic sculpture and sound installation that expresses the artist’s vision of nature through a series of symbolic elements that are used harmoniously in a technological context.
Cymatics creates real spaces that are metaphysical and spiritual at the same time. A place where art is a bridge between the material and the spiritual, between technology and nature, and between the humanities and science. Two cubes, two rooms, two substances – water and non-Newtonian fluid – are brought together into spaces where sound waves transform the substances into geometric shapes. The result is a harmonic vision of the elements of nature, demonstrating the morphogenic effect of sound waves (cymatics).
The creative process involved building a synergy between music to be seen and images to be heard, so as to create a sensorial performance for the complexity of human perception.
