Chladni Singing, by Meara O’Reilly. She creates patterns out of salt using her voice! I’m thinking that there must be other people experimenting with this too?

    I’ve seen the use of salt a lot in making sound vibrations visual – usually from synths and stuff. It’s cool to see it done from the human voice and in a more conceptual/artistic format.

    First time for me too, it’s magical!

    This is pretty cool… wondering if you can achieve a high level of variety with using the same grid underneath?

    I bet you could get a lot of different stuff, but this piece is so concentrated on those like few of noises. And what’s with the silverware?? I’m intrigued.

      I know! I was wondering what was up with the silverware also

    Beautiful, but also misterious in some way. The forms are symmetrical and following a path. I would like to see the how other noises look! 😀

    I tried to draw with snails. They were uncooperative. I’ll have to feed them blackcurrents to make their trails more lively.

    This is a video of it being done in a more ‘lablike’ setting. Increasing frequency, the patterns slowly change and morph. There are plenty more related videos as well – some neat stuff!

  • Henry Collingham

    It’s a common physics experiment, and all of the maths used for shaping instruments such as violins and bases, that have to be resonant at different frequencies, is derived from this experiment, although it typically is done using a sine wave generator.

    It was pioneered by called Chladni, he used a bow to vibrate the plates.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
