Aristotle, and later on, Descartes described that light travels in a manner similar to waves in the ocean. This notion would evolve into the wave theory of light.

"Lightwaves" is a potentially infinite grid of cells, an undulating landscape of form and light that evokes a flowing sensation of resonating waves.

The series of single cell variations is generated by applying parametric processes. The algorithm enables continuity of form at neighboring cells and ensures that each singularity has its own unique fingerprint shape.

The fabricated result is a pair, a rectangular group, or a random cluster of singularities of this evolving process.

Corian DuPont Glacier Ice was used to best capture the animate form of the smooth rippling effect and to let the light vibrate through the material.
