"Marino Marini's Dancer (1958) Takes A Bow" (animation, 18 sec. loop 2012)
I was invited to the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl (Germany) to make several installations that work within the museum’s focus on sound, video and sculpture. The museum owns one of Marini’s ‘Dancer’ series, and I decided to make a hand‐drawn animation of it. Staying close to the detail and spirit of the sculpture, the dancer is animated to take a post-performance bow. The animation was digitized by Pavlos Papadopoulos, and is projected on a wall of the museum across from the bronze original. The animation is now part of the museum’s permanent collection.

Coinciding with the introduction of a new project called “The Middle Way”, the research that inspired it has been published. The Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies offers reprints of “Stones of the Suez Canal: A Discourse in Absence and Power in Cyprus and Egypt”.
An installation of drawings, animation and photography from “The Middle Way” is part of a regional/international group exhibition called “Terra Mediterranea – In Crisis”, curated by Yiannis Toumazis at the Nicosia Municipal Art Centre (the Power House) – July 4th though 30th December 2012.
"Transistor Circuits in Electronics" : An Appreciation. (Or, When My Father Quit Being an Engineer) in Palimpsest II, exhibition of artists books at Theartspace in Nicosia opening 30th March 2012, until 4th April 2012, and at Theartspace in Dusseldorf, September 2012.
I altered this book, originally printed in 1964, to show only the schematics of transistor circuitry that my grandfather would have worked with. The book, as I changed it, is a comment on the curious (love - hate) relationship between artists and engineers. I highlight that by inverting the authors' statement of intention - preserved from the preface - that "no attempt has been made to make it a design book".

Site specific radio drawing, installed at Omikron Gallery’s group exhibition, ‚Drawing Room’. Nicosia Radio is a wall-mounted drawing and a functioning, un-amplified radio that viewers can listen to. The outcome of the drawing depends partly on the radio frequencies available in this gallery; here a coil construction also makes reference to Nicosia’s Venetian walls with eleven bastions. Nicosia Radio refers to the complex media space that exists in this politically divided city.
