A 15 kHz sonic vibration is reflected at a precise distance from its source, generating a standing wave that levitates a gold leaf and other lightweight matter. The air between the intonator and the reflector is evenly divided into alternating areas of dynamic acoustic pressure and semi-vacuous nodal pockets. Within these pressureless voids, fluids and solids can hover and spin between the surrounding sound fields. An evocation of the weightless, frictionless environment, commonly found in outer space, is coupled with an extended opto-aural awareness of space-time itself: the levitating objects modulate the frequency and amplitude of the standing wave that suspends them, consequently influencing one another’s spin patterns – each part is an inseparable, co-emergent reflection of the whole.
