Installation • Painting on circular canvas with acrylic compounds, diameter of 50 cm • Video projection [duration: 3.00 min].
The project [ the cell ] aimed to subject laboratory cells to sonic experiments. The exhibition presents the result of a cymatics experiment of sonic generation of the specifically created frequencies, on a classic canvas support with acrylic substance.
Is sound pollution more damaging than air pollution? Are there any beneficial sound frequency? [The Cell] explores the effect of certain frequencies on living cells. Samples of live cells were subjected to 3 tipes of frequencies: 417 Hz, 369 Hz și 528 Hz and were studied under the microscope, by researchers, before and after the experiment, but also by comparison with incubated control samples.
