Canon Pixma Printer: Behind the Scenes
The people behind Canon Pixma printer used sound frequencies to organically shape the formations of paint bouncing off a small speaker. They wrap a membrane on a small speaker and place paint on the membrane, then they put sound through the speaker which vibrates through the membrane and the paint bounces and forms beautiful images. They shoot at a high speed and the depth of field is less than a millimeter, which makes the filming very difficult. This video is great because it combines photography, music theory, physics and film.
This video is a great example of another innovative spin on the use of paint in the art world.
