Ions are charged particles in the air; some are charged negatively, some positively. Negative ions, in layman terms, are oxygen ions with an extra electron attached. They are produced through water molecules, which is why they are in abundant supply near fresh, flowing water supplies like: rivers, seas and waterfalls. These negative ions, are plentiful in natural settings and dangerously low in: air-conditioned office, over-heated homes or stuffy cars. In a society where we are constantly surrounded by positive ions, especially in metropolis cities, it raises the question if we are the cause for our own mind body imbalance.
These images taken of the Atlantic Ocean in Rockaway Beach, Queens test this theory. Exploring the calming affects on the mind/body with each crashing wave onto the shore produced by the oceans natural negative ions. Both Auditory and Visually.
