Melody Dots II is a ‘Gesammtkunstwerk’ in which different kind of arts come together. It is a sculpture consisting of a semi-circular screen and a kinetic mobile with colourful disks that moves in the wind. The sound, written especially for this work, creates rhythmic interruptions of the glass plates that reflect the colourful dots.
And although the beauty of this work lies in all its ingenuity, that is not the first concern of Japanese artist Yoko Seyama. Her real interest is what all these art forms result in, which, in her own words, is a sculpture of pure light. To her it is about the dots, dancing on the screen, sometimes finding each other and fusing, then going their own way again.
