The law of translation


3-screen digital video. 

Duration: 5.33


The 3-screen film  is an attempt to question aesthetically and visually issues of translation, language, identity and the construction of self. In a sense this work, becomes a common place where two translations occur, a translation from English to Greek as well as a translation from the physical languages to algorithms, from real life to code and software. The project is trying to explore how an in-between subjectivity is being formed and deformed through language and what is being lost in translations. By making use of subtitles, text and audio fragments in both Greek and English there is a playful intention to disorient and confuse the viewer, trying to transcend the experience of feeling trapped between two languages .

Short film focusing on silence and materialities at the Santa Cruz boardwalk trying to encompass the loneliness and emptiness of the space when the occupiers are gone and when there is no one there to entertain anymore.

Homo-extedus


Digital essay film
Duration: 1.29 


My film titled Homo-Extendus is an attempt to look at how people behave in archaeological spaces, trace those choreographies and movements that have been enabled with the emergence of the smartphone. The camera was placed in different spots across a very touristic route that most tourists follow when visiting Athens. I tried to record movements just like a documentary film-maker would record wild animals in the jungle, without interfering.





The Disappointment of Arrival

Film. Shot on Samsung Galaxy J3 camera.
Duration: 8.34


Disappointment of arrival is a film essay about the experience of arriving in the United States as an architect, as a student and as a Greek. It expresses the disappointment of arrival in New York and the United States, after being the consumer of all those highly mediated images. The shots were all taken through my cheap phone that has a really bad camera. The idea is that the urban situation and movement should not be disturbed. The camera is becoming an eye in the city, my own personal eye in different parts of the New York, capturing environments and movements.
