i took this photo of reflections of lights on the surface of some oils (jojoba oil and essential oils) that i was mixing vigorously in a metal bowl, and it was making these neat looking trails. makes me want to try doing cymatics with a more viscous liquid like this.


i found a comparison that someone did of water and olive oil, youtu.be/KRQFeQDYgAk

after doing my first performance with live liquids last night i'm feeling emboldened to try out live cymatics for a performance (and then colorizing them with analog video synths)??? maybe will test some things out...
