Sound Sculpture

This is a nice little piece by Daniel Franke called “One Minute Sound Sculpture”. The idea of a sculpture made from sound is really intriguing to me and something I hope to explore in the near future. This guy’s take on it is pretty cool and he’s really good at tracking an animation and placing

Vincent Ganivet sculptures

French artist Vincent Ganivet makes beautiful and sculptures using mostly common building materials.
