Been there_done that

Action “Been there, done that”

By Katerina Anagnostaki, Stella Koutlaki, Zacharias Ouranos and Grigoris Stavridakis, at 1821 square (Splantzia)

Today the social networks are overwhelmed by “selfie” and “braggie” photographs. Poses and locations are pinned on digital walls, in an effort people to publicize what they prefer, which is their occupation, how they entertain themselves, how they spend their vacations. Facebook, twitter, Instagram etc. serve all those purposes, when tagging yourself under the title “been there and done that”. However, this tagging, as well as the feedback one gets, are closely related to the place they have been; it’s characteristics, it’s quality and it’s symbolism. How is space recreated through cyberspace? “Visiting” a public space via facebook is a procedure which guarantees the “real” image of a place?


Game “Infectopia”

By Artemis Papageorgiou, in collaboration with Elina Roinioti, Stratos Bichakis and Christos Koutsouradis, at Athinagora square (Metropolis)

A new virus has arrived in Chania and it is highly contagious and dangerous! Infectopia is a variation of the game Αμπάριζα (Prisoner's base), where Viruses and Guards employ different strategies to win. A team will need either to shrink the other team by infecting its members, or to find and send a secret password to the light projectors in order to gain control. The light projectors are the source of strength of the city and if they turn off, the city will fall into the darkness of the virus, while if they shine the city will once again be under the protection of the Guards.
