the fascination of ‘sonic water’ by media artists sven meyer & kim pörksen, is rooted in their ability to aesthetically express sound
as a visual experience. the installation produces constantly transforming images -  which react when a user adds content to the liquid mix.
water in small containers act as flexible three-dimensional sculptures that translate sounds into kinetic imagery. through the use of
light and speakers, the water tanks produce wave patterns depending on different audible frequencies, reflecting on the process of changing
chaos and order. by following the law of the golden section – the liquid soundscapes react like forces of nature, reproducing identical
vibrational patterns found in the tones of the solar system.
