Ukrainian Artist Transforms Nature Patterns Into Sound Waves
Sound waves are probably the least exciting visualization of sound you’ll see on a computer, but Anna Marinenko sees a certain similarity between these waves and reflections of landscape on water. Her work on nature sound form waves consists of two parts. First, Marinenko takes an image of a landscape (or clouds, or ships…) reflected on water, and then joins it side-by-side with a sound wave picture, which organically continues the pattern set in the ‘real’ photograph. Thus the images are harmonious, especially when the colors match. Prints of the pictures can be found on Ms. Marinenko’s Etsy!
The project was inspired by Ms. Marinenko’s time in nature, and especially the meditative moments watching the water. “It made me thoughtful and concentrated, I noticed line of reed on the opposite riverside reflected in water,” she wrote on Behance. “It was so similar to picture which I see everyday on my music player screen.” Thus, the project was born.
It’s somewhat unusual in Marinenko’s portfolio since her work is usually centered on 3D graphics, architecture and industrial design. Just goes to show that a little inspiration can get anyone to break out of their shell!
