On Thursday March 5, I attended an extra credit lecture called, Cymatics: Bringing Matter To Life With Sound presented by Dr. Hans Jenny. I was really impressed by all these videos of matter, sand or liquids, vibrating in different frequencies forming various shapes.

I believe I missed the first few minutes because of our class at Broad Hall so I am not perfectly sure about the accuracy of the facts that I am going to bring up in this blog. Nevertheless, I liked this presentation because I have learned a lot about vibrations and frequencies etc in physics and chemistry, however I never had the chance to see a visual representation of all these initially abstract concepts. The textbooks have a couple pictures but it is nothing like a video where you actually see sand vibrating and eventually forming a ring. Even though they may seem meaningless, I do find beauty in all these pictures and videos because they help me realize the grandeur of nature that is able to form incredible art works. I should not deviate and start talking about all the perfect creations of nature, like the human organism because that would take really long, but at this point, I have to admit that that presentation was really captivating because I was able to visualize various concepts like vibration of a membrane at a specific frequency that causes a liquid to move in such a way that reminded me of professional dancers doing a choreography.

I am not sure to what extent the rest of my classmates where impressed but I feel that at least south campus students saw something special that they have heard of many times but never managed to actually see. Additionally, I thought that many of these shapes formed were pretty funny which I guess is another form of art because once the scientist/artist figures out various frequencies that make the liquid or sand vibrate in different way, he/she can actually create something instead of simply moving matter. Thus, the audience not only gains some knowledge about vibrations, but we get to see art. If we go back to first week, we can see that this presentation combines the two cultures, art and science to produce something very unique that has double purpose as I mentioned previously, to educate and entertain. This being my last blog for this class, I feel that the last sentence actually summarizes the purpose of this class, to promote the combined use of art technology and science to educate and entertain ourselves and the people around us.
