Dancing Colors 13K views 510 days ago by Jolita Switzerland-based photographer Fabian Oefner decided to connect visual world to an acoustic one in a way that would illustrate an actual sound wave in a photograph. He does it by putting some colorful pigments on the speaker which is covered with a thin foil. Then, when the sound goes through the speaker, it triggers some movements and the vibrating speaker makes the colors shout in the air. This is the moment when a colorful sound wave is formed.
Victory Rolls Hairstyle The 1940s Victory Roll hairstyle is often said to acquire its name from the fighter plane maneuvers of World War II. The planes created an exhaust roll that remained in the sky after leaving the area and inspired many patriotic civilians to adopt the the name in honour of the soldiers returning home. The name has also been linked to the “V” shape the rolls can sometimes mimic when styled in a particular, upright way.
