Two vibration detection sensors are secured to the bottom of the antique prayer bowl. Using wooden and felt tip striker, the viewer creates and stops vibration of the prayer bowl. Standing waves that are the product of interaction are analyzed and translated into visualizations of String Theory. Music score is based on the mapping of the vibrations caused by the prayer bowl to the MIDI notes. The resulting information is used in audio synthesis.
