dentsu: paint sound sculptures

 

 

 

the creative studio dentsu, teamed up with photographer linden gledhill to create this series of paint sculptures using sound vibrations. the series was part of a campaign for canon’s pixma ink printer brand. 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.

  • They look like they’re made of rubber… Insanely cool. I agree with prestune, some shiny scaled up models of these would be amazing. The last one would be cool scaled up so you could walk inside the little arch thing forming at the front…

    Reminds me of Edgerton’s milk drop.

  • What is the name of the piece playing in the ad?

  • Not really a new idea. If your interested in how matter takes shape using frequencies study Cymatics by Hans Jenny. I almost wish the paint appeared a bit thinner.

    Still cool inspiration. 🙂
