the fascination of ‘sonic water’ by media artists sven meyer & kim pörksen, is rooted in their ability to aesthetically express soundas 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.

  • Greetings,
    I would like to know what kind of Projector you used in the Demonstration at the Olympus OM-D Expo in Berlin this May. Could you please write and let us in on that detail?

  • This is a visualization of the resonance and harmonics of water in the confine container. Also water tension factors into
    this as you can see when the amplitude overcomes the tension it ‘snap’s into a more complex waveshape realted to the resonant harmonic.

  • Quote, “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.”

    Nonsense.
    Is this the 17th century? Tones in the Solar System? Good grief.

    And I don’t see how the golden section has anything to do with Chladni patterns.
