Sympathetic Resonance

Carl Sagan’s 1977 Golden Record was a message containing sounds and images of Earth sent out into space to be intercepted by intelligent extra-terrestrial life. Using this model, I began constructing my own message about climate change to the people of Earth. I came across the concept of sympathetic resonance, a harmonic phenomenon where a formerly passive string, or vibratory body, responds to external vibrations to which it has a harmonic likeness. In a multi-channel video using found footage, I leveraged this concept towards inspiring action on climate change.
