Artist Martin Klimas’s most recent project involves painting with sound. The New York Times compared his works to a 3-D version of Jackson Pollock, but instead of throwing paint on a canvas, it’s paint flying in the air. What was involved was putting a variety of coloured paints on a speaker and then turning the sound way up. The speed at which these shots were taken is insane; a shutter speed of 1/7000th of a second.
The shots are almost surreal and look more like computer animations that something that could happen in real life. It seems the camera can capture more than are eyes. Still, the sheer power of sound that these works represents really took me by surprise. For more on this series click here to read the article in the New York Times.
