Georgios TSAKIRIDIS & Efthymia Dimitra KOTSANI: The project “Lapis Callidus” engages with the re-negotiation of spatial, architectural, functional and eventually, social structures that emerge from the blurring boundaries between contemporary definitions of the physical world in natural and artificial milieus. The project suggests the introduction of a highly sophisticated robotic system with swarm-like behaviour properties, in an inherently dystopic territory, such as the abandoned sulphur mines, located in a volcanic subterranean area called ‘Paliorema’ on the Greek island of Milos.
