Sound Wave by Jean Shin

 Sound Wave, a sculpture created by Korean artist Jean Shin out of 78 rpm melted vinyl records.

Records were melted and sculpted to form a cascading wave, dotted with bursts of colorful labels. The resulting structure speaks to the inevitable waves of technology that render each successive generation of recordable media obsolete. The piece also aims to physically manifest the ephemerality of musicas well as one man’s musical tastes, as represented by his personal recordcollection.
