suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
achilleas KAKKAVAS: “A Glimpse of Flow” is an investigation of materiality. Through a series of experimentations on arranging and mixing, material is forced to reveal its characteristics and produce patterns of flow, blending and transformation. Through different photographic technics the creation of ambiguity is achieved. The images are familiar to the eye but enhanced with a blur understanding of the material, process, scale, limit and time.
