Sonolevitation

The picture above is from an art installation called “Sonolevitation”. Artists Dmitry Gelfand and Evelina Domnitch have trapped little triangles of gold leaf in negative pressure zones created by standing waves of sound.

Gelfand and Domnitch are basically modern day Wizards, taking a simple-but-strange natural physical phenomenon and turning it into artwork.
