Painting With Sound

Like a 3-D take on Jackson Pollock, the latest work by the artist Martin Klimas begins with splatters of paint in fuchsia, teal and lime green, positioned on a scrim over the diaphragm of a speaker. Then the volume is turned up. For each image, Klimas selects music — typically something dynamic and percussive — and the vibration of the speaker sends the paint aloft in patterns that reveal themselves through the lens of his Hasselblad. For this series, Klimas spent six months and about 1,000 shots to produce the final images. The resulting images are Klimas’s attempt to answer the question “What does music look like?” (via nytimes)
