Since the 1970s acoustic levitation techniques have primarily been applied by NASA and ESA to trap and navigate otherwise uncontrollable samples in microgravity.

In Force Field, an acoustically levitated water droplet begins to resonate and suddenly transforms from a spheroid into an oscillating polygon that multiplies its starry pinnacles as the sonic pressure increases. Unleashing an unprecedented audiovisual instrument, Force Field simultaneously taps into the 3-dimensionality of sound, the elusive physicality of water, and formerly inaccessible depths of both inner and outer space. Force Field extends the tradition of avant-garde research on phenomenological art through tightly-interwoven artistic and scientific practices.

Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand will develop Force Field in collaboration with computational artist, Paul Prudence, acoustic physicist, Alexander Miltsen, and the Hydrodynamics Laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique.

The Force Field installation is scheduled for completion by September 2016, which is the reason why only video documentation of the prototypes developed at the residency is being presented at this exhibition.
