A great group of great people in for a great night…greaaaaaaaaaat

Els from ITYS (who has curated a great show opening April 2nd) introduced video Journal No 1, which was first show at this past years Documenta in kassel Germany

the crowd with the cool blue glow from an HP projector

and after a short intermission and some a.v. switching around.. Aristede came to tell us about his project…He decided to speak in english even though there were only two of us who wouldnt understand what he was saying.. which was nice of him.. here he is now..

the audience into the lecture.. ahhh yeahhh

Here is Aristede explaining a schematic of his project…

Nadia intensely listening (she reviewed the photos after the lecture and gave me her stamp of approval) Thanks for coming Nadia

Pretty sure he called this a “Shit Lake” looks pretty nice to me.. but hey.. images can be deceiving

Irini asay.. “SHIT YEAHHHH…. SHIT LAKE”

did he just say “shit lake?” (while Inge contemplates the smell)

So Aristede delivered a great lecture.. as he finished to take some questions.. in the picture behind him are videos taken by robots in the water system to help pinpoint problems.

and a few stayed dry inside and continued the conversation

so thats it for the Screening and Lecture… Many thanks to ITYS and Aristede and I hope to see you all at the closing of kafeneon and THE FINAL SHOW on monday MARCH 31st at 8:30 and thanks to all for the help, see you back here soon!

I couldn’t come for the closing paul. I see it was ok. please correct: the shit lake is not this> this is the dam that is empty in these days. it is called the Kouris dam.
