Martin Klimas Captures Paint Pushed by Sound

Martin Klimas places paint upon a translucent material, underneath which is a speaker. When music is played, the carefully selected mixtures of paint explode from the surface, reaching upward and intertwining. Klimas captures these events photographically and mates each photo to the piece of music that created it (the one below is Kraftwerk’s “Transistor”).
