'Cymatics', first pioneered by Natural Scientist Hans Jenny, explores the science of wave phenomena. Jenny's methods of experimentation with Cymatics shows that when playing a range of frequencies through a platform with a substance placed on top, different patterns emerge and transform as the frequency changes.
Hans Jenny conducted his experiments animating powders, liquids and pastes into geometric patterns, which were reflective of many sacred geometry forms found in the natural landscape, our bodies and beyond planet Earth.
All of the patterns that Jenny created were formed using pure tones, also known as simple sine wave vibrations, that are within the audible range.
Jenny's physical representations of sound frequencies beautifully exhibit the relationship between vibrations and the physical world. They inspire a deep recognition that we, too, are part and parcel of this same complex and intricate vibrational mix.
