CYMATICS by Hans Jenny


Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, was pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Dr. Hans Jenny (1904-1972). The core of this edition is Jenny’s two volumes originally published in 1967 and 1974, documenting over 14 years of his meticulous experiments using audible sound to excite powders, pastes, and liquids into lifelike, flowing forms. The stunning array of over 360 images reflects a variety of patterns found throughout nature, art, and architecture. The photographs in this book consist entirely of experimental phenomena. There were no computer-generated images.

In this expanded edition, there is an assortment of commentaries by leading researchers, artists, and scientists, who articulate how Jenny’s body of work has profoundly influenced a wide range of disciplines in the arts and sciences, particularly over the past twenty years since the original re-issue of Jenny’s two volumes was first released by MACROmedia Publishing in 2001.
