About The Work
My new art series titled "Frequency Aesthetic" delves into the fascinating world of sound frequencies, examining the potential to present them in a visually striking two and three-dimensional format. I aim to create representations of sound waves that mimic the effects on the brain that listening to the same frequencies would have. I’ve become fascinated by mathematical and scientific principles related to sound and frequency. I am extremely excited to explore their intersection through visual art.
This series began with a few questions that set me on a path of inquiry: what if all living beings, matter, and everything else in existence are either in harmony or discord with one another, relative to universal resonant frequencies? Could we manipulate these frequencies to bring everything into or out of phase with one another, and how might this impact our health and environment? Could emotions be physical reactions to sympathetic harmonic resonance? My current work takes a deep dive into these thought-provoking questions, examining the possibility that we are all connected through an intangible web of frequencies.
I explore the correlation between these universal frequencies and the omnipresent naturally occurring mathematical principles of Phi, Fibonacci, and the golden mean, seeking to show that we are all one massive unit made up of infinite individual parts.

I couldn’t have been more than a week in when the Vice President cornered me and asked me to follow him to the rest room. He told me that (in addition to the other tasks) I was... READ FULL ARTICLE.
