Force Field Blends Art and Science

An installation at the interface of art and science, Force Field uses sonolevitation to acoustically levitate a water droplet that resonates and transforms from a spheroid into different oscillating shapes as the sonic pressure increases. Capturing the 3- dimensionality of sound and the elusive physicality of water, the droplet’s vibrations are rendered into sound and computational images that are presented as a live hemispherical projection and multi-channel sound environment. A first installation version of the work-in-progress is on display from 30 January - 7 February, daily at ACUD Macht Neu.
