160X220-300cm, glass, isothermic blanket and PXK patches, 2017.
*Polyxene’s sacrificial cloak in Sophocles tragedy. Apeiros can be translated as infinitus, inexpertus, terra continens (Lexicon Sophocleum)
Here, patches of an isothermal blanket (used by astronauts and castaways) are transformed into infinite, non-experienced continents where the concept of home is dissolved
It consists of 4 partly superimposed glass panels 120X160cm. partially covered with patches of space/castaway blankets and PXK (processed aluminum sheets with powder color and liquid glass).
PXK is my innovative material which stands for the sacrificial skin shed behind after each cultural crucible, while realizing my global fossil installation PXK Route -2004-2015- anchored in different continents (2nd Beijing Biennial 05, FMC Syria 06, 4rth Tashkent Biennial 07, Nuit Blanche Paris 07, Olympic Fine Arts of Beijing 08 (Golden Medal), Flags UNESCO-Beirut 12…) The present installation is part of this planetary work
The overlapping glass panels can be shifted hiding and revealing the ones behind; the density and length of the installation is adaptable to the hosting space. They are lighted in the back from below.
Her main Project Myth/Network* -1990-2016 is a self-combustive system of interlaced sub-projects emerging from depth psychology and multiplexing in dispersive overview installations anchored in numerous sites of the earth, through the audience creative interaction (Chrysalis 1990 in 300 sites 27 countries), or through her participation in big world events (PXK ROUTE 2004-2017 in 25 sites), Affective- cognitive maps merging spectral/ actual space (1994-1998-), generic language games (Code Lexomorphes 1991-2017), telecommunication exchanges of legends/landscapes 2007, Agro-psycho-SAGA community projects (Uranias Gardens 2009-2016)
Her intuitive real-life experimentations are processed in her narrative articles and essays like PAI (Seven Sleepers coed Uni.Lucian Blaga editions 1997), When that word swallowed me (Sphinx, Hidden Thebes Festival 2016)..
Her early cross-disciplinary essay The Conscious Eye, Aigokeros, Athens 1988 was re-edited in the English joint essay: Artificial Intelligence Professor John Kontos needles Poly Kasda’s Conscious Eye, Southwind, Amazon 2015.
