Artist and designer Jan Koen Lomans (born in 1978, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, lives and works in Utrecht) takes movement in nature as a basic principle for all his work. Quantum science has taught us that everything in nature is perpetually in vibration, from the smallest particle to gigantic galaxies. Circle of Resonance (2020) emphasizes the constant presence of resonance. We humans do not only consist of frequencies, but are also connected to everything around us through vibration.

Lomans' research into the philosophical consequences and outcomes of quantum physics resulted in a collaboration with the Innovation Space community at Eindhoven University of Technology. It was understanding the universe as a holistic principle, consisting of frequencies, which served as the inspiration for these monumental experiential and frequency sculptures.

Science, design, architecture and visual arts come together in this work. In addition to the discoveries and innovative insights made in quantum physics, these singing bowls are consistent with thousands of years of ancient wisdom and traditions. Because, assuming that the body consists purely of frequencies, vibrations can also have a positive and healing effect upon it. From a historical viewpoint, developments within quantum physics are perhaps not as groundbreaking as they seem. Apparently the Pyramids of Egypt and the temple complexes of vanished South-American civilisations also had rooms that were used as frequency and healing chambers.

In 2018, the installation Garden of Resonance, comprising 6 bowls in a 3000m2 industrial hall, was on show at the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven.
