Yoko Seyama: Melody Dots 14 – Colour and Saiyah #2
Both Yoko’s installations are based on the use of the so-called dichromic glass that lets through or reflects different spectrums of light. The artist is thus able to achieve breath-taking visual effects: her simple and visually convincing works transform the space into a meditative environment where a never-ending performance of live colour matter takes place. Melody dots 14 – Colour is a moving sculpture whose central element consists of several smaller glass coloured disks. Their movement creates an abstract choreography accompanied by a composition by the composer Dirk Haubrich. The ambiental »treat« titled Saiyah #2 transforms a gallery into a flexible geometrical landscape created with several glass plates and mirrors where colourful surfaces morph and change shape into a peculiar manifestation of chromatic harmonies.
