The Voice and the Clay  (2014)


In the mid 1990s there was a research studies on water quality by a Japanese researcher, Dr Masaru Emoto. In his research, where he froze water and observed the water crystal through a microscope, he discovers that these water crystals react dierently to sound signals and vibrations. The water formed beautiful crystals after receiving positive sound signals and vibrations. On the other hand, the water formed disfigured crystals upon receiving negative sound signals and vibrations.

Based on a similar idea to Dr Masaru Emoto’s water research, an experiment is conducted by myself to find out if the VOICE does have an impact on CLAY. As working clay contains around 10% to 25% water, it will be intriguing to find out how clay will react to positive or negative sound signals and vibrations. In this experiment, 5 samples of 1kg clay will be extracted from the same bag of clay.

Each sample was assigned to 1 signal:

Sample A – Negative speech 

Sample B – Positive speech

Sample C – Positive thoughts 

Sample D – Negative computer speech  

Sample E – Song “O Mio Babbino Caro” performed by Lucia Popp

The signals were given to respective samples once each day for approximate 30 days and observations were recorded in a journal.
