Livadi, Thessaloniki, Greece.
This was a land art project created during the symposium ‘The Meadow of the Ephemeral II’ organised by Thanassis Raptis and the Photography Center of Thessaloniki.
The Greek question mark was dug into the ground and planted with blue flowers. The idea is that the flowers will bloom and die and re-seed for the following year.
Questions written in Greek are set next to the installation and ask: Where are you going? Who is going with you? What will you take on your journey? Think before you advance and choose your path carefully. Tread sensitively, you do not know who has passed this way before. And finally: What have you learned on your journey?
Visitors were asked to walk around the question mark following footprints on the ground and they also participated by writing answers to the questions.
I was in Thessaloniki five days before the referendum and so the questions could be read personally or politically. I also painted a Greek question mark on the road using the local ochre coloured clay.
