Sound Sculptures Made of Paint Caught on Film

Posted by David Ozanich — 1 Dec 2010


If you have ever wondered what paint sculptures created by sound vibrations might look like, today is your lucky day. Dentsu, a Japanese advertising agency, cooked up this experiment with photographer Linden Gledhill to promote Canon's Pixma printers. Here's a bit more detail on what exactly you're looking at from designboom:

The photographs and videos begin by wrapping a membrane around a small speaker. Ink drops were placed on this membrane and the speaker was turned on. Once it began to vibrate the ink begins to jump up and down. High-speed video cameras and still cameras were used to capture this including circling around the sculptures to see them from all angles. Experimenting with different sounds and frequencies created the various pieces.
