After completing my first project exploring cymatics, I was offered the facilities and software which allowed me to carry out the experiment in much more detail. My previous exploration was done with low tech equipment and the results were not as accurate. This time, the equipment was 100% accurate leading to much clearer visual results.
If you have not seen my earlier project, cymatics is visually representing sound through vibration. Each note or sound has a frequency and Hz value, specific equipment allowed me to play each note into a plate which vibrated. In order to get a visable pattern, sand is poured on top of the plate, when the note is played the sand settles and forms the shapes below.
This project shows the visual results of the experiment, I will be using the shapes to form a larger idea but wanted to simply present the results as they were such interesting patterns.
