Athens21: Re-frieze-ing

The Athens21: Re-frieze-ing project is a seventy-five meter portrait of the city created with silhouettes of Athens residents from all walks of life, who are bringing their city into the 21st century.

Most prints were made with Melissa Network, several at Coco-Mat (Kifissia), and the Victoria Square Project.

The artwork's length is a reference to the frieze taken from the Parthenon at the heart of Athens, which the British Museum will not return to Greece. Exhibited at Victoria Square Project, Athens, August 2017

Cyanotype photograms on cotton, approximately 75m x 1m, 2017

Some photos from the project's making and exhibition:
