γλωσσόpolis

This series of photographs, was produced for the “Γλωσσόpolis” project; an interactive multimedia exhibition, about language, its extensions and its potential power, which

took place at the Library of the Greek Parliament .  As a timeless

and cross- cultural matter, deeply social and political, language is the medium, through

which the everyday activity is formulated and is constantly taking place. So, the show was

structured on a multitude of topics, related to the language phenomenon and orientated in

educational purposes. The context extended from linguistics, modern greek literature,

scholar and formal language and international impact of modern greek, to the daily

expression perspectives: youth language, greeklish, the web slang, the politics’ speeches,

sexism, humour, political correctness, the greek sign language, idioms and dialects.

In this case, the approach applied, follows the direction of a more specific and concrete

interpretation. The produced works, each one corresponding to the exhibition’s topics, are

articulated in terms of research in the the language phenomenon. The technique of digital

collage is selected as it achieves the directness and vividness needed. Thus, her pictures

are formed through the depiction of urban and other familiar sceneries, in which she chooses

to add action and motion. The images’ symbolic, though targeted, content manages to

describe the complexity of the issue and also to visualize the words’ extended influence in

the aspects of “being”.
