Thessaly

Thessaly pattern is inspired by the motifs of the area’s long weaving tradition. It is a composition of different figures as they were found on various traditional textiles. Their form brings to mind the weaver’s drawing grid of as well as pixel art aesthetics.

2023 Eleusis

Our team was selected by the 2023Eleusis European Capital of Culture to present our project “City Patterns – Mystery 85” in the opening ceremony on the cultural coastline of Elefsina city. The first part of the project refers to an ephemeral installation of a series of patterns printed on 10 natural-fiber banners. The project was created through a research process on the folk heritage and cultural history of the various communities of Elefsina. Working closely with the local cultural associations that represent different areas of Greece, as well as the people who comprise these associations, we recorded their experiences, their memories from their ancestry and places of origin, and, finally, their art and symbols, as those are manifested in embroideries and other artifacts. Subsequently, and in accordance with the methodology that runs through all of our work, we isolated details from these images and narrations, and edited them into something new. Mr. Theodoros with the Dodekanise pattern in Elefsina Sofia with the Pontus pattern in Elefsina INSTALLATION The patterns correspond to ten different places: Asia Minor, Chios, Corfu, Crete, the Dodecanese Islands, Elefsina, Epirus, Peloponnese, Pontus, and Thessaly). Using the traditional silkscreen method, the banners were printed on natural fabrics, with eco-friendly materials. They will be posted on a corner building at 17 Kanellopoulou Street (38° 2′ 11.0256″N 23° 32′ 18.5957″ E), thus creating a visual narrative in open conversation with the city’s contemporary look. Afterwards, they will be given to and repurposed by the cultural associations. DOCUMENTATION The material for the City Patterns was collected through a research process pertaining to the city’s distinctive urban and natural environment, but more importantly to its people and their stories. Reaching out to the various cultural clubs within the area will contribute to recording the locals’ experiences, the images that they carry from their places of origin, their art, their embroideries, their symbols. The patterns offers a fresh telling of the visions and memories of the area. They bring out the unique character of the Elefsina city as well as its cultural diversity.

Milos

Milos

The idea for the pattern is derived from the protocycladic ceramics found in the island of Milos. The composition was created by editing editing various designs and forms that were handpainted on prehistoric pieces of pottery - kernoi, jugs and vases. A repurposing of the original artefacts which gave birth to new accessories for the here and now. Shapes and elements from the protocycladic ceramics SUPERCYCLADIC - M2P in the Sun The collection consists of a bucket hat, a versatile bag -both made with a limited edition greek indigo denim fabric-, plus an oversized cotton T-shirt.
