A parabolic mirror mounted on a polished aluminum pedestal reflects the open sky, shaping the small pool of water contained within into a liquid lens. As ambient light is caught in a cascading series of reflections between the curved mirror and the underside of the water, a speaker housed within the sculpture vibrates the bowl with subsonic frequencies to disrupt the water's smooth surface with cymatic patterns, scattering light into a scintillating display. Choreographed performances of vibrations slowly build and dissipate, entraining the viewer into a relaxed and meditative state of mind.
The fully reflective surface causes the sculptures to blend into any given environment, creating the illusion that a dew drop of water floats in mid air.
