Gledhill and his crew began by setting the camera up on a custom-built spinning rig, they than adjusted the macro lens’ focus—which was obviously no easy tasking considering they were working with about a millimeter of focus. Next they placed a few drops of paint on the speaker, hit the power button and fired away. The result? These colorful “sound sculptures” that look like something from another world.
