Susi Sie


One of the best attempts to visualize sound we have ever seen (and there have been hundreds) this succeeds so well because the precisely visible action of actual sound waves upon the super-fine powder filmed by Sie, feels real and not the result of some forced corespondance.The resulting sequence is amazingly persuasive because of this precise consilience between sound and vision. Perhaps a rare glimpse into a synesthesic world for those untroubled by this condition. Wonderfully vivid sense of matter transforming.
