4 points of frustration around the Eleni Loizidou ‘corruption scandal’ / My mom got hacked and they say she’s corrupt!

So she was hacked. There dawns the realisation that it was a matter of time, one way or another. When we recently talked about the possibility of her being targeted in this way, in advance of all this, she ended the conversation with 'μάνα μου εν έσιει τίποτε.' Her sense that there's nothing to hide… Continue reading 4 points of frustration around the Eleni Loizidou ‘corruption scandal’ / My mom got hacked and they say she’s corrupt!

openness, democracy, hack66, Phygital, and ellak.org.cy

What follows should, eventually, lead into a piece discussing conflict-resolution in open communities, and the handling of authoritative mentalities.

πόθεν εφκήκεν το ξύλο;

..τελικά εν ήταν που τον παράδεισον. Ήταν που την πόρταν του ψυχιατρείου. Πόθεν να τα πιάσεις τούντα πράματα & πόθεν να τ'αφήσεις. Περίληψη των πιο κάτω: εκτός που τα γενικά προβλήματα με την πόρταν (την κράτησην), προτείνω μιαν παρανοϊκήν, κυρίως, και ταυτόχρονα χαοδικήν, και επίσης ανορθόγραφην ανάλυσην του πιο πάνω βίντεο που καταλήγει στο ότι… Continue reading πόθεν εφκήκεν το ξύλο;

on Kyriaki Costas’s waterways

7/4/2015 Writing while the project is still in development, I wonder how Kyriaki's work on water might develop in exhibition-format.
