As the digital and physical worlds become increasingly intertwined, it can sometimes become difficult to distinguish the differences between the two. CGI is becoming scarily realistic, and 3D-printing allows a person with the right tools to literally pluck an object from the digital world and place it in the physical one. Art has consistently acted as a blurring point on the line between digital and physical, as evidenced by Ukrainian designer Anna Marinenko’s sound wave composites.
Marinenko, “observed the aesthetic similarity between the oscillating heights of mountains, trees and skylines and the waveforms of music,” according to DesignBoom, and thus set out to compose a comparison that would highlight the visions she saw in the trees, buildings, and mountains around her. The way she lines sound wavelengths up with the stellar photographs of a mountainous horizon or the wake of a motorboat makes the comparison seem so natural, the viewer feels ridiculous for not making the connection sooner.
