PHTHORA

PHTHORA and APHTHARSIA This research is based on the first map engraved by Human. It investigates the very first moment that one of us got his eyes off the horizon, looked up in the sky and acknowledged his place through Time. The mountain’s darkness, the dusk’s horizon and the hope that emerges from the dawn, are the foci of the previous months’ study, trying to reinterpretate the relation between Man and the Sky. To the dark canvas, the Night. LINK.01 02

PREFACE Completing my research thesis(Μηδέν-Zero-) and trying to make a review on everything that I have encountered, my mind stood upon an analysis named “Before the Shadow”. It had to do with the design of a medium that exists between a building and its shadow. The geometry produced wasn’t a building nor a two-dimensional object, but it embedded all the basic principles and ratios of the former. jump to PARENTHESIS-01 Trying to understand the reason I chose these specific examples, I concluded that they had to do mostly with personal preferences and criteria. So, the next step was to base this reasoning on something fundamental, like the Sky -ΟΥΡΑΝΟΣ-. In the beginning of this new research, I analysed and recorded the relative motions of the celestial bodies. Indicatively, I will mention the motion of the stars, the Sun and the Moon. The time frames of these recordings vary from a day to almost 26000 years. Then, a question rose to the surface: “Is it possible for something that is intertwined-interrelated with Time, to be translated into an architectural drawing, without using conventional techniques?” So, I started the contruction-assembly of a series of maps, that had as a purpose to reveal the everchanging nature of the Topos, having as a base of observation what we saw as a variable until now . the Sky. 03
