OBSIDIANA is an interactive installation and cymatic instrument that uses data from light frequencies reflected on water to play patterns created by sound visualization. The piece is projected onto a 10 ft interactive circular screen with embedded photocell light sensors. The data collected and visualized creates a cymatic feedback instrument. Inspired by the Mayan obsidian water mirror, it reflects the concept of art as shamanism, operating as a mediator to connect different realms of consciousness to shown the unknown.
