HEART ATTACK, installation with 3 animation HD, (2΄42΄΄). Music by Dahlgren Ekonomides
Tripych / Heart Attack is an installation that includes 3 animations that are shown simultaneously with the same music. It is a visual tale in which the element of water dominates, connects but also eliminates. It reminds the tales of my country where people and gods in the difficult moments transform others or themselves to serve a purpose or be saved.

I live in a Mediterranean country and have seen the refugees come in thousands, stacked in plastic boats and it's something I will never forget. I felt that a kind of mutation happened not only to refugees but also to the landscape and to ourselves. As if someone had woken up a chthonic oil Medusa in order to wipe out every human element. In my installation I wanted to express the mixed images and feelings we live in a dream where a clear story is not shown but the anxiety, the tremor of danger, the moment of inevitability and loss wonder around.  These feelings I transferred to images and the sequence of images created the script. Each frame is a different drawing. The history of our world is a story of migrations through which culture is formed by interactions. People who travel through the margins of water carry the food, the spirit, the songs and the habits of another land which is never too distant. 

For the installation is needed:  

  •  a “Π“ shaped dark space of approximately 3 X 3  meters.

  • 3 projectors one for each wall a set of audio speakers

  • one laptop, VLC program

The spectator will observe the animations while walking through the space.  The projection lasts 2΄ 42΄΄ and it loops from the beginning.
