TRANSPARENTIA, SIX DOGS, GREG HAJIJOANNIDES, EXHIBITION

A guy in his 50’s enters the room kind of curious, kind of reserved, kind of intrigued.  He walks around and then puts a little smile on his face. You read his expression and you can tell…“that’s so unusual and interesting”.  He seems to be heading off but he comes back.  He comes back to revive the feeling of being “nude”, pure, and transparent in front of your own light. Natural light coming out of the most intriguing parts of your body.

Those who have visited TRANSPARENTIA exhibition, would know how difficult it is to keep an urbane tone at an urban place like that, especially when the substance of the art piece is your own body. Regardless of the sexual connotations that someone could easily identify at Greg Haji Joannides art work, to me it is more than that. It is the opportunity to shed light at your own inner shelf.

IMPERFECTION

Sopi Su the imperfections @ decor8.gr 1 Sopi Su the imperfections @ decor8.gr 2 Sopi Su the imperfections @ decor8.gr 3

The inspiration cames from the Japanese author Sei Shonagon, best known as the author of The Pillow Book. It is a book of observations about her life during the early 11 th century while she was serving in the court of the Empress. It includes her personal thoughts, interesting events and poetry. This project is based on my observations of daily life’s imperfections, and each words or sentences are laser-cut out of card.

Chicken Point Cabin Olson Kundig Architect

“The idea for the cabin is that of a lakeside shelter in the woods—a little box with a big window that opens to the surrounding landscape. The cabin’s big window-wall (30 feet by 20 feet) opens the entire living space to the forest and lake. Materials are low maintenance—concrete block, steel, concrete floors and plywood—in keeping with the notion of a cabin, and left unfinished to naturally age and acquire a patina that fits in with the natural setting. The cabin sleeps ten.”
