We are made of water
The project explores the effect of oscillating frequencies through the specular reflection of light. Light from a projector reflecting on the water mirror creates modulation effects seen on a screen. The effect of oscillating frequencies from a loudspeaker can be experienced as distortion of the projected image. The aim of the installation is to reflect on the idea of the origin of matter as made of oscillating particles within an emergent system. Oscillatory energy are the creative force of the universe, all cultures over the world have use/d sound to attune to, invoke and transform consciousness, sound is a powerful tool, because it is vibrational in nature and we are vibrational beings. Sound seen as oscillating energy relates to morphogenic fields, the natural field of transformation. (Key Words: Morphogenesis, shamanic, acoustic resonance).
