Two Colorful Melodies


Dir. John Baldessari, Color Sound 00:05:30

Page Contents


In the first of Two Colorful Melodies, Baldessari strikes a series of notes as the camera moves from one colored square to another. In the second "melody," a young child sings out the names of the colors of the squares as the camera pans over them. In each exercise, Baldessari continues his deadpan investigation of the associative meanings of systems of language and representation.
