a space in 300 pieces [or peaces], 2010
an interactive event on a site specific, floor - based installation, lasted five hours between 17:00 - 22:00
An ice cream cone with two lemon- flavoured balls was served to the visitors. Each ball originated from
and inevitably represented each one of the two parts of the island. Each cone was wrapped inside a specially designed,
individually numbered paper wrap, each one coloured in a different shade of yellow.
Guests were invited to combine the possibly wrinkled and ice-cream-stained wrapping paper,
in a collective and life size 300 - piece puzzle. This composition was in a constant state of flux during the exhibition
and represented different ice cream color readings. The visitors’ on - site movements remitted to a choreography,
while being asked to find the right spot on the floor to place their bloc.
The completion of the floor - based plan was totally depending on the site’s visitors and their willingness
to interact. The final image depicted a geographic area, which gradually evolved into another,
architectural space, the one of Ledras street check - point.
