Interactive Exhibition
Project Overview
In an exploration of multisensory art, Cymatics represents a sound box that intakes raw sound input and translates the auditory experience of music to its visual form. Inspired by physicist Ernst Chladni, the tool represents the intersection of music and physics to surpass sensory boundaries.Due to its nature, the visual output is unpredictable and experimental. The varying complexity of music is represented by the dancing salt particles that absorb musical vibrations as a form of energy. This phenomenon may be harnessed to create a kaleidoscopic effect or be served as a medium to channel audible experience to a visual experience.
The fabrication was done together, and wiring was done by Laurain Park with help of Alan Grover. Documentation and pamphlet design was done thanks to Rhea Gupta.
