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
