Milk in the Moonlight

Brooklyn-based photographer Sara Naim uses her camera to capture sound.  She does this by vibrating Beetoven’s Moonlight Sonata through milk, and then photographing the milk.  What makes the idea even more special is that the sonata itself was conceived and composed as a way to translate an image into sound – Beetoven wrote it for his blind pupil and lover, Giuletta Gucciardi, after she told him that she wished she could see the moonlight. The piece is about the moonlight’s reflection off Lake Lucerne in Austria.
