Had a hectic day today. So decided to treat myself and push up to 4G. I have very small ears. I made up a mixture of copious amounts of olive oil and bio oil. Bled in one ear. Pushed on like a trooper. Hurt like a bitch but that’s just my ears. Waited for so long to get to this size. Have to keep reminding myself my ears are still attached :P #stretchers #gauge #4G #ouch #fucking #ow #happybleed
These patterns are made with nothing but sound. They are called Chladni patterns, after the German physicist Ernst Chladni (1756-1827) who used his violin bow to vibrate a metal plate with sand on it. A pattern appears in the sand when a surface is made to vibrate at certain resonances. A plate or membrane vibrating at resonance is divided into regions vibrating in opposite directions, bounded by lines of zero vibration called nodal lines. The sand is moved around the plate and collects at the nodes on the plate. The patterns that form are highly symmetrical and beautiful.
Name's Claire. 20 years old. I live on the Southmost island in the world. I'm a photographer and a songwriter and I dabble in all things in between. I am constantly torn between too much optimism and crippling doubt.
I hope one day I can spend all my time making things that I can finally be proud of.
