In the space where art and science intersect, the technology to see sound is created. The exhibition Cymatic aims to bring to life the imagery of specific audible moments. Popular melodies and iconic sounds have been depicted by artist Belinda McGrath through the technology of a Cymascope – a machine invented to capture and record the patterns made by the pitch, vibration and frequency of sound. This equipment also allows the opportunity to record and visually create the sound of a loved one’s voice. Cymatic will intrigue the viewer by overlapping the senses of sight and sound.

Cymatic: The Visualisation of Sound is the thirteenth exhibition to grace the walls of the Merilyn Luck Gallery for Central Queensland artists. This initiative honours the contribution of Rockhampton Gallery supporter Mrs Merilyn Luck, who has long recognised the Gallery as ‘the cultural heart of our city’.

Belinda McGrath is Rockhampton based printmaker.
