Applied Pure at the Mathematical Institute

Music & Light Symbiosis no. 3


Katharine Beaugié - Light and Water Sculpture  

Medea Bindewald - Harpsichord

Curated by Balázs Szendrői


An immersive light, water and sound experience and exhibition.

A unique collaboration between light sculptor Katharine Beaugié and international concert harpsichordist Medea Bindewald, combining the patterns made by water and light with the sound of harpsichord music in a mathematical environment.

Katharine Beaugié will also be exhibiting a new series of large-scale photograms (photographic shadows), displaying the patterns of the natural phenomena of human relationship with water and light.

The Programme of music for harpsichord and water includes pieces by the composers; Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757), Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667), Enno Kastens (bn. 1967) and Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750).


“Katharine compels her audience to contemplate life’s stark realities. Yet at no time do you feel adrift. She welcomes you to the dark and glittering universe beyond the gallery walls with a gentle, human hand.” 

Georgina Treloar, Writer/Musician, 2018
