Appreciation towards Sonic Water for providing the following description:

超酷的声波水!
声波水是一个cymatics装置。cymatics能将声波和和振动波可视化,比如利用沙与水。
如此神奇,无形世界的真相就这样被揭晓。
这个工具除了可以帮助人们理解宇宙和世界,还能做出很酷很酷的视觉展现。
屏气凝神,看视频吧~

Sonic Water is a cymatics installation.

Cymatics is the process of visualizing sound and vibrations through matter, such as for
example sand or water.

 

In the beginning there was sound.

The reason cymatics exerts such a strong fascination is that we are not conditioned to
“see sound”. Cymatics is like a magic tool that unveils the true substance of things
audible, but conventionally invisible.

With it one can recreate the archetypes of different forms of nature.

So sound does have form and cymatics enables you to comprehend that it not only
affects but causes form in matter.

In fact, we think sound had a fundamental influence on the formation of the universe
itself. But that is another story.

Primarily, we are fascinated by the simplicity of this subject.

All it takes is sound and a very basic medium such as water to create… well, what could
be (and in our view is) the coolest sound visualizer.

这是怎么工作的呢?

团队在柏林的摄影点安放了两个装置。其中一个可以供人们自行安装和创建水声图像。这
两个装置没有任何区别,除了可以DIY的那个还可以提供摄像机位让人们把自己做的也给
拍下来。

安装,只需要在现有的振动扬声器声膜上粘一个装满水的普通瓶盖就行。各种脉冲转化为
声音,让声膜发生震动,瓶盖里的水于是产生相应的水纹。

人们在进入房间中,先是看到大屏幕的惊人图像,接下来等到他们接近装置发现真相时,
他们会疑惑和惊讶,原来真相这样简单。当然,这个展览最重要的意图还是让观众参与到
DIY水声图像中。观众可以自己对着麦克风发声,也可以播放自己喜欢的音乐。

你喜欢什么样的音乐,会出现什么样的结果?
花儿,海星,分裂的细胞,还是其它什么,这些都因声音的脉冲频率不同而相异。

在实验室中,你就是宇宙大爆炸的创造者之一。

How does it work?

Our installation at the Photography Playground in Berlin consists of two different areas.

A self-running installation and a DIY water-sound-image laboratory where people can experiment with their own cymatics.

The setup in both areas is almost identical. The only difference is, that you can use your own camera and create your own soundscapes in the DIY laboratory.

The installation is very simple: A sound signal is used to vibrate a speaker. On top of the speaker membrane we have applied a plate and on the plate we have then glued an ordinary bottle cap. The bottle cap (or the whole plate) is filled with water. The water works as a flexible three-dimensional sculpture mass, that translates the sound into pictures. The vibration of the speaker creates one of a kind water-sound-images in response to the respective sound impulse – from chaotic patterns to standing mandala-like waves.

The camera films the speaker from above and basically shoots a macro mode live view of the bottle cap action which is projected onto a large screen.

When people enter the room they initially just see the big screen cymatics projections. However, once they approach the cube with the speaker they suddenly grasp the setup and have this moment of incredulity and utter bewilderment, that a setup as simple as ours can create such astounding visuals. But this part of our installation is actually just an incentive or an ice breaker.

Our actual intention is for the audience to have fun in the laboratory, where they can create and document their own cymatics.

In the DIY laboratory you clamp a Olympus OMD camera on the stand, which you get upon entering the exhibition and you can then film or take photos of the water-sound-images you create by means of sound signals from a synthesizer, by using your own voice (via a microphone) or by just playing your favorite song on your smartphone.

What does it look like if you hum your favorite tune into the microphone? What does Wagners “Twilight of the Gods” look like in cymatics?

The results are images reminiscent of the shape of flowers, the form of a starfish, the patterns of turtleshells, cell division, the golden ratio, the flower of life – all depending on the individual frequency impulse.

In the laboratory you become the creator, the big bang and part of the genesis.
