Residency Program / Public Space intervention / Communitism / 2018 / Athens (GR)
Like the voice of the building itself, the project declare publicly “Hey you, I care about you, come dance with me” / “Γειασου, μου νοιάζει. ελά να χορέψετε μου”. It functions like a public sign that is delivering a collective message, addressing the pedestrians, the locals, the marginals, the neighbours, the foreigners, the immigrants, the party people, the strangers, etc. Claiming care and celebration as a solidarity gesture toward the local community and festive collective experience as a social cement, it's making a open and inclusive call to the hood, the city of Athens, to anyone passing by. Being at the same time, an in-temporal message, a community’s slogan and an invitation to join in. Along with the sign, a collection of recycled silk-screened T-shirt with the same printed slogan will be designed for Communitism, all benefits will be invested to support the building renovation and the social activities.
