Since 2006, Ex Ponto has been exploring the world of Cymatics through large-format projection, interactive public art exhibitions, live visuals, and experimental workshops.
A term coined by physician and natural scientist Hans Jenny, Cymatics is the study of wave phenomena and vibration. It is a process that occupies a near-perpetual state of experimentation in which audible sound frequencies are used to animate inert powders, pastes, and liquids; offering a unique glimpse into the hidden dynamics of nature. Witnessing this process gives us an insight into the interactive, elaborate web of vibrations that creates the world we perceive.
