Singing Bowl Cymatics

One of my favourite things at present has to be super slow motion video footage. And while working on Contemplative Computing I had occasion to become quite enchanted with the way that tibetan singing bowls worked. So this wonderful experiment in cymatics is basically right up my alley

As the frequency of the rubbing reaches that at which the bowl naturally vibrates, the bowl’s edge begins rhythmically to change shape, from one slightly oval shape into another.

The energy of this shape-shifting partly transfers to the water, in which a range of interesting patterns can arise as the intensity of the rubbing increases.
