Documentation of a installation that translates sound into a visual experience using the kinetic properties of water. A large parabolic mirror, acting as both vessel and optic, is filled with water and seated in the cone of a speaker playing audible and subsonic frequencies. These sound waves propagate through the water to form cymatic patterns that, when illuminated, refract light to create real-time projections. Distinct Faraday waves are visible when playing particular harmonies while dissonance turn the image into a blur of motion and scattered light.
These fluid oscillations of energy function similarly to the fluid surface of our sun, which vibrates with its own acoustic energy.
