Exploring the idea of editing through selected works of Yayoi Kasuma.
Yayoi Kasuma (草間 彌生)(official site here) is a Japanese artist and writer.
Her works are renowned for their repetition, patterns, psychedelic nature and their inclusion of recurring polka dots. Though her compositions we can see how the act of editing and compositing can be effective at bringing together seemingly disconnected objects, into a connected, unified whole. In regards to her work, this is achieved by her repeated use and inclusion of the polka dot pattern. The objects and spaces have now been “stitched” together by their shared pattern.
The reason for her choosing the pattern of polka dots is because her hallucinations often consisted of this reoccurringpattern, as well as the fact that she sees her life as “a dot lost among millions of other dots”. Her fascination also stems from the dots being seen as “a round shape that has no end, and therefore is infinite”.
Even from her two photographs you can observe how she has edited and refined her appearances based on her obsession with polka dots.
