✛ Cymatics is the science of visualizing audio frequencies.



✛ Photographs of long exposure light reflection over vibrating water waves.


✛ When you are completely attentive with that attention in which there is no object because there is no process of acquiring, no cultivation of the will to achieve a result, then you will find that the mind is extraordinarily steady, inwardly still—and it is only the still mind that is free to discover or let that reality come into being.




✛ This is not digitally created – instead – patterns directly from the natural world.







✛ There was never a time when the world began, because it goes round and round like a circle, and there is no place on a circle where it begins.





✛ What you are basically, deep, deep down, far, far in,
is simply the fabric and structure of existence itself.






✛ You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.

✛ We find there is only present,
only an eternal now.

“The task is … not so much to see what no one has yet seen; but to think what nobody has yet thought, about that which everybody sees.”
― Erwin Schrodinger


✛ The equation of reality is in the waves.

Johanna finds that cymatics should be approached with an open mind so as not to stay within your own set boundaries: “Various liquids, the amount of light and the distance from the Petri dish, the specs and diameter of subwoofers, the characteristics of sound, the setting of photographic equipment and the lenses – all this determines the final result. The charm of cymatics is hidden in the rhythm of physics and mathematics and in that they really do exist. Our eye perceives them as logical patterns, too, because we’re used to the same rhythm distribution in the nature around us. Pure art is hidden in the laws of nature.”
