Laser Cymatics


Laser Cymatics

(vibrations altering reflected light)

This is an installation that involves a darkened room, a container of water, and lasers. Because of the faint quality of light, the work is difficult to document on video. Under the container of water is a special vibration speaker hooked up to a tone producing device. Various frequencies were introduced, which altered the surface of the water, which then manipulated the beam of laser light that cast onto the wall. The final product is like a science experiment, without the science, that creates a very surreal and psychedelic visual effect… Below are three videos of the installation in action.

One: 52.4Hz and Rising

Two: 53Hz and 52.9Hz

Three: 66.20Hz and 67.83Hz and 69.40Hz
