Susie Sie has teamed up with CypherAudio to create a stunning visual audio art project entitled Cymatics. Sie gets creative with her materials, opting to utilize Lycopodium (a fine-grain power) to see how it reacted when it was met with the reverberations from a set of high-powered speakers. The result is a completely hypnotic, visually striking, monochromatic film.

At first glance, the video appeared to be digitized; however, it's simply the flammable Lycopodium reacting to the vibrations and forming cool new patterns. Definitely check out this film if you’re interested in artists using substances in brand new ways! Lycopodium, for instance, is typically used for pyrotechnics; but here it makes for an amazing visual experience.
