The title of this work refers to Damien Hirst’s Spot Paintings, numbering some 1400 to
date, which all comprise of static grids of dots, in completely random colours. Hirst is
famous for these paintings, but now is the time for an update, on a number of levels.
Firstly the addition of movement, with the dots continually changing colour and also
changing shape as we pass across the work. They are now three-dimensional and kinetic.
Secondly the dots have an underlying complex pattern - when first viewed the dots appear
as random, with vague hints of diagonal light patterns. But the eye only focusses on an arc
of 4 degrees, and therefore only sees periphally the greater order, which is the rows of
octagons as seen in a photograph.
Thirdly the piece is accompanied by minimalist music, composed by Sherman Tang.
All of this suspends the viewer between order and chaos, much like the op-artists of the
1960s, and hopefully results in a prolonged moment of contemplation.
