The Sourcebook

This on-line sourcebook will coincide with the residency project that I will be conducting at the Prairie Center of the Arts from February through April of 2011. The purpose of the sourcebook is two-fold. First, I will be using this blog space to record my own research, source images, sketches, studio set-ups, and photographs created during this project residency. Secondly, I encourage others to add to the sourcebook by adding stories or reflections of their own, adding links to relevant materials and sources of information, adding pictures, commenting on items I have posted, or critiquing the images that I create throughout the project. As with any sourcing project, the more material collected the more comprehensive the research. While this project does center on the subject of water, anything remotely connected to the idea can add to the research or inspire new directions in the work I am creating in the studio.


  1. Kaz. there is an excellent water and sound exhibit at the wood street gallery in pittsburgh. here is a link to the artist's earlier work ( .

    Basically he takes a large shallow pool of water, reflects light from it and then projects very low frequency sound through the room or through the water.

  2. A friend and I were just working with an 18" bass driver below a table with a shallow water pan. We were using a Moog Moogerfooger Low Pass Filter pedal (self-resonating a sub-sonic signal) to manipulate the shallow pan, looking somewhat like to this:

    We're currently wiring a laser rig and some reflectors, but it's being pushed back do to senior thesis shows. Just not enough time in the day right now. I have some good research articles somewhere that I saved in PDF format, I'll try to dig them up.

  3. I first came across the work of Masaru Emoto while watching the film "What The Bleep Do We Know." His work with water is fascinating and the photos are beautiful, as are your photos, Kaz.
