Of Sound and Science comes is the culmination of an experiment and collaboration with an Intersection of Art and Science course and NASA JPL in Pasadena. The piece is inspired by ideas surrounding energy transference -- specifically, the kinetic energy of air particles when moved by sound and the absence of this interaction and subsequent wave creation in space to the absence of air in its vacuum.
Here, the power of a bass speaker launches paint into the air, creating a visual representation of the energy that now be seen in the negative space of this vacuum. The vibrant colors, elegance, and intricate, energetic forms of the shapes created through this method signify the sense of power lost in the absence of sound in space despite the massive celestial happenings that occur every day, with or without our witness.
