Product Description

Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, is a science pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Hans Jenny (1904-1972). This comprehensive edition documents over 14 years of his meticulous experiments using audible sound to excite powders, pastes and liquids into life-like, flowing forms. The stunning array of images reflects a variety of patterns found throughout nature, art and architecture.

If you know enough about Cymatics to be buying a book on it then you'll probably know that the work of Hans Jenny is pretty much the authority on the field. Basically everything you need to know about it and essentially 90% of the new findings in the field of Cymatics is in this book. I did my dissertation and much of my third year university photography work on this topic and after all the research I did, the only other sources I found that offered anything else worth reading were 'Water Sound Images: The Creative Music of the Universe' By Alexander Lauterwasser (fitting name) and anything you can find by Ernst Chladni (which won't be much because he died a looooooooong time ago). But yes, this book is definitely the foremost thing worth having regarding Cymatics.

Interested in the patterns in singing bowls, and the fountain effects caused by the vibrations. This guy has methodically, done a pretty comprehensive job, not on bowls but on the effects of vibrations. Have started reading and looking at the pictures, very interesting.

I expected more image examples of different methods of Cymatics but if you want to know more about the physics on how it happens this is the book for you.
It is a thick book so there is plently to read on the different areas of cymatics and its origin.
