Abstract:

Historically, the sound of an object or material was rarely considered by its maker unless
it was intended to be acoustic by design. As a result, the contemporary environment is made up
of unintentional aural byproducts. Cymatic Bricolage is an interdisciplinary method that
investigates this notion of unplanned aural experience by re-contextualizing discarded objects as
soniferous. In the exhibition of this work sounds are visualized to create an immersive
audiovisual experience reflecting my experience of being exposed to an environment that
periodically produces physical waste and is characterized by unintentional acoustic spaces. It
builds upon the traditional Cymatic Method, developed by Hans Jenny between 1965 and 1975,
by using physical and aural cultural byproducts to establish a relationship between sight and
sound.
