Artist Adam Brown is interested inthat connection — “the strange space between image and sound,” he says.
Which is why he’s gone out of his way to take a digital photo, turn it into audio waves, etch them onto a vinyl record, and “play” them back using a USB turntable and a projector.
It sounds complicated – and the technology behind it is. But Brown says that his project (which he calls “Concentrism”) is at its core “noisy, glitchy and fun.”
He’s using this complicated process to play around with boundaries between media, to ask “how does a photo translate into a sound?” Or “light waves into audio waves?”

Some of my photographs from the Anacostia River project were featured on Oxford American’s Eyes On The South series today.
Mom and Katie at Hilton Head last summer.
I’m so thankful for the seasons.
February: slow for freelancing, perfect for Vday collaging. My inner seventh grader is thriving.
The cutlery has evolved since 1924.
The weight of metal pressing against your palm has lifted.
How does it feel? Is that why you keep your stories to yourself?
