Dancing Colors by Fabian Oefner

Published Nov 19, 2012

Impressive images of colour pigments “dancing” on a speaker, captured by Fabian Oefner, a photographer based in Zurich, Switzerland.

“I have created a new series called “dancing colors”. The idea of the series is to build a bridge between the acoustical and the visual world. The sculptures you see on the images exist only for a fraction of a second. they consist of normal salt, colored with pigments. The salt is placed on a thin foil of plastic, which is wrapped on top of a speaker. As soon as the speaker receives a sound, the plastic foil starts to vibrate, forming these strange figures.

In order to capture the specific moment where the pigments are lifted into the air, I attached a microphone to the speaker, which is again connected to the flash system. As soon as the speaker emits a sound, the microphone picks it up and sends a signal to the flashes to trigger them. Since i took the images in a completely darkened room, i can just leave the shutter open for a few seconds, only the event illuminated by the triggered flashes is captured.”
