Digital darkness

Create a new document of any size, for this example l will create a document that is 1024x778 - for a standard desktop background. Fill the background with black (#000000).

Create a new layer. Get out the rectangular marquee tool, and make a selection like so near the bottom left corner (region) of the canvas:
 Press CTRL + D on your keyboard to deselect the selection. And go to Filter->Distort->Wave and apply the following settings:
 Go to Edit->Transform->Flip Horizontally

Press CTRL + E on your keyboard to merge these two layers together.

Press CTRL + J on your keyboard again to duplicate this layer.

Go to Edit->Transform->Rotate 90 Degrees CW

Press CTRL + E on your keyboard to merge these two layers.
