RISD ARTIST BALL: NOCTURNE

CATEGORY: Identity
DATE: 11/21


A longtime RISD tradition, the Artists’ Ball is a giant dance party sparked by over-the-top costumes. Students often work together to design and make whatever they’re moved to wear. The outcomes range from cute and sweet to silly or downright weird to gutsy and totally outrageous.
        This year’s theme is Nocturne. The German scientist Ernst Chladni succeeded in visualizing music in the last century by using the response of particles to vibrational frequencies. We called it chladi plate. My further research helped me to discover this unique octagonal pattern, which is formed by particles at a vibration frequency of 432hz (the central C). The visual presentation borrowed the pattern with blueish color pallete to celebrate nighttime revelry.
