Day X is a series of 5 publications, each featuring a one-day collaboration between a writer and a photographer working in Europe.
Book No.2 : Nikolas’ searching photographs and Theodoros’ haunting poetry emerged from a sleepless perambulation for one day and it’s night through Athens, a city redolent of a powerful history and marked by the predicaments of the present. A 24 hour transport ticket for the Athens public transport network provided the frame. Their Day X was 29/30 October 2016.
About the Artists
Nikolas Ventourakis is a visual artist living and working between Athens and London. His practice situates in the threshold between art and document, in the attempt to interrogate the status of the photographic image. A quest that unfolds in the decisive years of the digital revolution, when a crucial overlap between producers and viewers seems to have reset all previous critical discourses.(source https://museumofnonvisibleart.com/interviews/nikolas-ventourakis/)
