Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
Reading some science articles, I chanced upon Ernst Chladni’s figures/arrays – created by putting sand over a thin metal plate and subjecting it to sound. The study of the visible sound vibrations is called Cymatics.
I have an inclination to tracing patterns and figures found in movies and old prints. It’s like a refresher in using different tools and techniques in vector manipulation, as well as preservation of the things past.
Here’s a catalog of Chladni Figures that I wish to replicate and turn into a pattern source:
Some figures I’ve already replicated using Adobe Illustrator:
More to follow from simple to complicated figures. Stay connected.
