Abstract

The tuning fork rules the orchestra through its precisely repeatable production of a tone at a specific frequency. The shape is designed to produce a simple tone, and slow-motion video shows how the two-pronged arrangement amplifies the primary mode of vibration while damping other more complex twisting and flexing modes. The variations on the tuning fork in this exhibition reconfigure the arrangement of the prongs to allow unruly vibrations. Could an unruly tuning fork sound interesting enough to join the orchestra too?
