Sonic Water lets you watch musical water dance inside a bottle cap. The installation is an exploration of cymatics (the study of vibration) by Sven Meyer & Kim Pörksen.

“Cymatics is like a magical tool that unveils the substance of things not seen. Sound does have form, and you can see that sound can affect matter and cause form in matter,” Pörksen tells Co.Design. “So maybe in the beginning there was sound, which shaped all matter. Indeed, we think sound has a fundamental influence on the formation of the universe itself.”
