Just recently, we were very impressed with Fabian Oefner's brilliant watercolor mosaics, and today, we focus on another one of his remarkably inspiring scientific experiments. Dancing Colors is a project where Oefner turns sound waves into visible sculptures and he says, "The idea of the series is to build a bridge between the acoustical and the visual world."
Talk about blending into the background. Photographer Wilma Hurskainen and her sister wear clothes that perfectly match their natural surroundings. Whereas we've seen this style done before, never have we seen it done so naturally, almost as if it was all done by accident. They're part of the larger series called No Name which deals with childhood and memory.
Can Sound Waves Blow Out a Candle? You can’t see sound waves, but you can see their effects. In this demonstration, students use sound waves to blow out a candle. You can do this simple sound wave demonstration with common household objects. You will need a partner to hold the candle for you.
