    Throwback: before most cables ran underground, all electrical, telephone and telegraph wires were suspended from high poles

    Cymatics is the “is the study of visible sound co vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid.[1] Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.” (Thanks, Wikipedia.)

    At Maison & Objet, this was part of an exhibition called “Experiential" by the very talented Francois Bernard. In the show, Bernard explores how artists and designers are incorporating technology into their work. The Elfenmaschine by Kymat Project was a standout and one that really gave me pause. I took a Vine of it.

    This is also a very cool video of a performance by the same folks.

    "The Pronto Posters originated as safety posters for the Production Line Ride at the Chrysler Pavilion, which appeared on the front page of the New York Times Automobiles section on April 13, 2014. All of the Chrysler attractions were designed for children, so I kept the safety posters simple and to the point by designing a graphic factory worker to demonstrate the consequences of factory accidents. Safety hazards were familiar after working three summers in factories during my college years. It was George’s partner, Gordon Chadwick, who suggested the posters be made as real posters for factories. Howard Miller produced and marketed them as the Pronto Posters."
