Audio recordings of jet engines play on a 4-channel loop. The sound system is positioned in front of a sheet of reflective mylar, which vibrates in response to air pressure from the speakers. Light is projected onto the surface of the mylar, reflecting a luminous image of the material's movement on the opposite wall.
Note: this project contains low-frequency sound that may be difficult to reproduce with most home stereo equipment.
