The Lens of Sound

Lens of Sound - Part One

‘The Lens of Sound’ is a collaborative project with Joshua Harvey, DPhil Researcher at Oxford University, which brings together a dynamic fusion of medieval and modern science with on-going artistic experiment and performance. The ‘Lens of Sound’ focuses on the parallels between Harvey’s attempt to visualise sound waves three dimensionally, using Schlieren imaging, and Carr’s effort to manifest them physically. Through the use of phase transitions, the project aims to give rise to three-dimensional cymatics in physical form. To make something with physical permanence from sound, normally experienced in such a brief and psychological way, will allow a synestheasic human perception of sound to matter; another lens with which to 'see' sound.
