found: Sound Sculptures

Dentsu, an advertising agency based out of Japan, teamed up with biochemist and photographer Linden Gledhill to create these sculptures of paint reacting to sound. This series – which are more like time-lapse paintings - was designed for an ad campaign for Canon’s Pixma brand.

These sculptures are made by wrapping a membrane around a small speaker, then drops of water-based paint are applied to this material. Once the paint is set in place, the speakers are turned on and a high speed camera catches everything in between – shooting at 5400 frames per second. The designer’s experimented with a variety of colours, sound frequencies, and volume to get the perfect images.

So rad! I would love to have a collection of these photos framed and displayed in my home. Don't you think they would be perfect for an office or workspace area? It would be such a lovely source of inspiration.

Check out this video to see what happened behind the scenes:
