This artwork is a part of Konstantinos Vasileiou’s research on the human body in relation with the urban environment during his MA Moving Image: Film, Video and Interactive Arts at Middlesex University. Through personal experience he concludes that while the human body can be enclosed and restricted, the mind does not follow the same norms. The human body loses its physical form within a restrictive environment, creating an artificial one which is empowered by the freedom of the mind. Using our mind to its limits we can develop a universe over and above what’s known.
”Far from the urban surroundings and trapped in a room, I spend my time dreaming. As my spirit exists in a different world I lose my personal attachment with reality. Many people consider it as an illness, I on the contrary, believe it is an exciting new experience.”
– Konstantinos Vasileiou, Artist
