Saiyah #2


The white daylight is splitting into two colors.

When it is projected on a spectral glass plate, it transmits only a specific color frequency spectrum. At the same time, the glass plate reflects the remaining color frequency spectrum. While the four glass plates are turning, the relation between the transmitted color and the reflected color changes. Several color compositions keep evolving by remixing the divided light source and create a live color performance in the empty space.

Saiyah #2 has been shown in various scaled space as it is ‘kinetic light’, in different condition, as an individually programmed installation and as live performance together with other sound and dance performance. According to the size and condition of the space, the movement of light is composed different as different versions. The Berlin-based Japanese scenographer and multimedia artist Yoko Seyama specializes in spatial time-based art.
