More specifically, in Sickle & Code, Cypriot and international artists present works that reflect, confront and re-evaluate current models of producing under the conjunction of global digital commons of knowledge.

The exhibition was accompanied by several parallel events that include makeathons, workshops, tours for schools and art schools, presentations, talks, performances and screenings."

EBB & FLOW by Shammaes

Poster Design

Opening: Thursday, 5 July 2018, 19:00
Ebb & Flow was a sound installation by Shammaes that brought together their respective interests in sound, design and architecture. The installation itself collides classic dualities, but by placing them in direct confrontation it ends up problematizing them.

mechanics and dynamics.
automata and avalanches.
harmonic and chaotic.

As time changes so do sounds and their convolution. The mechanical oscillation’s contact with soil is done at the expense of harmonicity and constancy. In some sense then, this form of oscillation resembles more and more to some other, more primordial ones; namely, that of a tide’s ebb and flow.

Personal Multidisciplinary Performance

“Orbital” is a multidisciplinary project in which Nico has created sounds out of shapes. By creating a family of symbols, he proposes a language. These symbols are translated into records, one record for each. The combination of these symbols lead to sound-sentences. By playing four of them at the same time on a quadraphonic sound system, a sonic image of this graphical conversation is created. The performance at Thkio Ppalies lasted for three hours. The crowd was able to walk in and out of the space at any time as the atmosphere was intended for meditation.
