MUNDUS (the Latin word for World) is a journey through spaces and materials, signs of life and personal items investigating the relationship between the subterranean world and the Cosmos.Photos, taken between 2010-2019 during the construction of underground infrastructure in the city of Thessaloniki reveal an invisible world that is in constant flux, shaped through explosions and demolitions, metamorphoses and transformations, thrusts and reconstructions. Connotations are evoked primarily from visual references to outer space, space missions and astronomical drawings, as well as through the alternating scale and angle of view of the pictures.MUNDUS brings out the beauty of exploration and the mystery of creation combining art with science, the imaginary with the real and the earthy with the aerial, through a visual process that borrows from geology, engineering, astronomy, mathematics and art.
