These plant spores were used in an experiment to show what would happen if they were subject to the vibrations of a subwoofer. The results are interesting showing that the spores actually move and group creating for a dynamic and interesting look into the science of sound.
The video was created by Susie Sie and the spores used are lycopodium powder. We’ve seen things like liquids dance and be formed by sound before, but this video was shot differently.
The whole project was shot in slow motion exposing the strange workings of sound and sound waves. The powders do all sort of things including clump up or dissipate depending on the sound being output to them and even jump around and move in organized rhythm.
