My current work explores the relationship between sight and sound.
The first piece in the series, the Third Harmonic, displays a representation
of the sound wave formed by two notes when one has a frequency three times
that of the other. In viewing the piece, the fading of sound is demonstrated
by the wave as it gradually contracts. As such, the piece also represents
the passage of time.

The three dimensional visualisation of this interaction is made possible
through the use of modern technology that expands upon the concept first
demonstrated by the harmonograph, a 19th century dual pendulum instrument
that illustrates harmonic ratio.

Sculpted by hand, the piece was made through a process of lamination.
However, given the complex nature of the curves involved traditional
lamination through the use of a former was unfeasible while free form
lamination failed to provide sufficient control to maintain the integrity of
the design. As such, it was necessary to develop a process of ‘semi-form’
lamination that would combine the two.

Overall, the series provides an insight into the connection between sight
and sound, a relationship where audible harmony produces visual symmetry and
where one fails, so too the other.
