Symphonic Node is twofold. It is a project inviting artists to write a letter referring to real space, physical, imaginary or otherwise, and how it has infused their research and practices, generating concepts and material for their artwork. During the first part, an all day open-air gathering was dedicated to the act of reading these letters. Imbuing whispering words of temporary soundscapes into the landscape of Paleomylos, considers other ways of valuing experiences of echoing narratives. In this sense, we explored the idea of reading letters in convivial gatherings as an exhibition format. The letters become perceivable through an embodiment via a reading given by the audience present.
The second component of Symphonic Node is found in a book-work of 75 editions, available for art collectors or avid readers. The setting of this book-work is formed by the artists and curator who participated with their letters, written and displayed in the English, Spanish, Greek, Turkish, and Swedish languages. It is both a work and book whereby the boundaries between visual art and text, language and image, are blurred. The work pronounces its format through a group exhibition within a given audience rather than by virtue of an anonymous distribution to consumers.
