Join me on a Mediterranean site-specific project-Mound Hacker

Israel is a home for so many cultures. Anywhere you plant, dig – you might find remains of someone who lived here once upon a time. Tel-Nona, a virtual mound – is a frame of thought where I excavate for artistic archetypes related to cultures around the Mediterranean and beyond.

After Dimitris Pikionis

Images of Dimitris Pikionis’s pavements around the Acropolis are still resonating within. My hands found a method to pave my way closer to the impressions: sellotaped drawings 12X21cm, pens and Japanese ink. Here are a few of about 60 collages. More about Dimitris Pikionis and Euclid
