I <?3 George :: oλ thanks
This contribution is at once still, looping and linear. It does so even without us bringing our own temporalities to it: we may cast a fleeting glance, stare intensely, avert our gaze and furtively return soon after.
Despite its split screen it is almost made in one, at once, along a single stretch of urban pavements and streets in a regional metropolis in Northern Greece.
I chuckle as I write ‘regional metropolis’ as it’s the name I gave the town upon arrival. This name is borrowed from Bhanu Kapil’ (2011) Schizophrene. This name links the work explicitly to an earlier work of mine, the line.
