Weaving Footsteps and Confessions (2013, 17’09″)
This audiovisual map is derived from the Emotive Circle walking series, created by the artist. The walking artwork was realised in the surrounding areas of Lycabettus mount, in Athens (Greece). The artist walked and talked with a co-walker, marking a circular route in that central location of the city. The intention was to “weave,” with his physical steps and conversations, what has been divided socially, while also “eavesdropping” on the emerging social vibrations of Athens in crisis.
