As I ride my bike through the forest I know there is a songa song of the trees, the rocks, the eartha melody, a frequency Im not yet privy to. When I saw the cymatics
physics experiment of sand dancing on a metal plate, affected by the frequency and amplification of sound, I wondered if there was a connection. I knew I had to investigate.
A two-week summer residency at Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper
afforded me the opportunity to explore cymatics
through papermaking in state of the art facilities with a supportive staff and dedicated, hard working yet sensitive assistant, Lauren Dubeau. Additionally the Illinois rep. for Pasco helped me in obtaining the equipment that I needed to perform these experiments, and a gracious and mechanically minded neighbor, Frank Suzda, stepped in to facilitate the technical aspects. (I can barely navigate the VCR.) Curtis Johnson
professionally documented the process. Family, friends, neighbors and strangers listened, reflected and ultimately assisted in the making of this worka reminder that we are not aloneour work, our lives are shaped through a harmonious connection with others. Jeff Volk who works with Sound Healing and has done extensive work in the field of cymatics
reminded me to consider my own vibration in the making of this work, to consider intention through visualization and the space in which the work is madeCymatics at its finest (etheric) level.
The excitement of touching on what seems like a portal to the universe, vibrational energy made visible
