Poetically Beautiful Combinations Pair Nature with Sound Waves

While sitting at the riverside and watching its opposing coast, Anna Marinenko noticed that a line of reeds reflected in the water looked aesthetically similar to what she sees in music. The Ukrainian-based designer then made the visual connection between sound waves and nature; this discovery lead her to crafting the beautiful series entitled Nature Sound Form Wave.

Marineko's works match the two different senses. Trees, skylines, mountains, and more are paired with varying musical waveforms, and the otherwise unrelated elements lay side-by-side to compose a single image. The poetic series features tall strands of grass that sway and play on the highs and lows in sound, while another combination matches a plane's path almost perfectly to its audio counterpoint. Nature Sound Form Wave seems to highlight the unusual connections we can make when we take time to sit quietly and reflect.
