Photographs by Martin Klimas

Photographs by Martin Klimas

Artist Martin Klimas came up with a clever idea: he put splatters of plaint on a scrim over a speaker and played music. As the volume was turned up, the paint popped up in the air and he captured the moments in a photograph. It’s a synchronized cacophony of art and music. It also looks fantastic. Source: gizmodo

Some numbers:

AVERAGE AMOUNT OF PAINT USED PER SHOT: 6 OUNCES
TOTAL AMOUNT OF PAINT USED ON THE PROJECT: 18.5 GALLONS
FINAL NUMBER OF IMAGES PRINTED: 212
SHUTTER SPEED: 1/7,000TH OF A SECOND
