It's easy enough to see that Mechatronic Harmonies is eerie. With its dark color palate and technological themes, the project conjures up  images of some sort of post-apocalyptic future. What's not so easy to see, however, is that the haunting sounds and imagery are actually all made from data. Created for German manufacturing company Wittenstein by Milan-based creative, production and design studio abstract:groove, Mechatronic Harmonies is as entrancing a data visualization as you've ever seen. Get lost in the swirling designs and effectively creepy audio below.
