Melbourne based sound and visual artist Robin Fox creates his art using Cathode Ray Oscilloscopes. Typically used to visually display wave shapes of an electronic instrument, Fox’s Oscilloscopes describe the geometry of sound.
Fox explains the mechanics of his show;
The same electricity generated to move the speaker cones is sent simultaneously to high-speed motors that deflect the laser light on an x/y axis converting sonic vibration into light movement.
