The project COLORS II is actually a game in the form of an experiment. A composition of colours and sounds, that influence each other, and at the same time the person the project is addressed to.

COLORS II is based on the following simple reasoning: each vocal sound and each letter is being represented in the project in a new way. The way, selected for the final representation of the vocal sounds and the letters, is based on a grid/ pattern of frequencies of visuals, volumes, colours, and sounds. The interpretation of these is open in the viewer.

COLORS II borrows elements from different sciences and creates its own “language”, a new aesthetic information.

Since the 18th century, composers such as their Hayden, Mozart, Bach, Cartufo etc., created musical games/patterns, which gave people the possibility to compose music, without the necessary musical knowledge. Having these music projects as a reason, and relieved from the intention to prove some scientific discovery, since it is an artistic research, the project continues its course towards its final form. It takes into consideration matters that have to do with the concept of random and the systematic tables, it involves the mathematics in its structure.

The fact that speech [voice] is chopped at will, and represented in a frame along with the five primary colours, involves both linguistics and music, since the vocal sound “sound”, constitutes the minimum sound element of language. The distribution of the appearances of the volume of information, and the frequency of these appearances, have to do with physics and mathematics that define the rules of the repetition – i.e. below the 1/10th of the second the concept of periodicity disappears, and the phenomenon of repetition is then dissolved. These types of elements influenced, and perhaps led to solutions regarding the structure of Colours II.

From the moment that information began to assemble, up until now, two years of continuous development and transubstantiation of the original thought into a visual creation have passed. It hopes to transmit only traces of scientific terms and theories, with the intention to be utilised by the viewer as aesthetic information – indication of a new interpretation of existing questions.

The work is constituted by 5 video projections in closed space.
