Berlin artist Daniel Schulze created an installation featuring speakers that shoot up fog circles with every blast of musical note.

Berlin-based artist Daniel Schulze created an installation featuring a 7×7 grid of audio speakers that generate rings of fog which puff up into the air with each blast of sound.

Schulze created For Those Who See in 2010 and the art project has managed to give temporary visuals to audio signals, which are typically invisible.

On his website, Schulze described the project as something that “shows the beauty of the unseen:”

The impulse of sound creates a vortex air ring‚ invisible, as the sound itself. Only fog is demonstrating this aesthetic phenomenon. Individually released to the air, our visual perception connects the single rings to patterns, surfaces or bodies, before they slowly [dissolve].
