"The narrative pressures the surface of reality". [Peter Brooks:
The Melodramatic Imagination (1976).] Melodrama No.2 is an interactive
video which makes use of scripting to compose and randomly select visuals
and sounds. The viewer can participate in the piece by composing visuals
and sounds within given parameters set by the artist. To fully explore
the work the user should hover slowly on the gray patterns. In addition,
waiting idly on some pictures triggers additional narratives.
