Waves by Daniel Palacios

Waves is a wonderful installation created by Daniel Palacios. Using just a piece of elastic string, spun around by two electro motors, the most wonderful waveforms are shown, from simple sine wave patterns to complex smoke-like images, moving lines woven together, floating in the air:

A great ‘side-effect’ of the movements of the string is the sounds it produces while cutting through the air like a razor blade. At times it sounds like some sort of living ventilator, changing timbre all the time. Or it sounds like a subtle breeze, stroking the branches of a tree.
