Stratis GEORGIOU: “Reef\” introduces the creation of an “artificial” ecosystem implemented to a “natural” one, speculating on the natural/artificial dipole rapture. Possibly situated in highly polluted sea areas, this “artificial” reef – a rather simple structure, consists of a horizontal grid and nets hanging from it, further claded with bio-synthetic corrodible material – aims to the ecosystem’s regeneration and retriggering, providing vital sources and proper conditions for the sea flora and fauna and at the same time functions as a filter, absorbing toxicants and pollutants.
