Project Description


Documentation video for the project Box for Expression, an interactive installation that facilitates storytelling activities in public space.

The video refers to Box for Expression‘s pilot implementation entitled “Public Toilet of Thoughts”, which invited passers by to collectively reject the thoughts that oppressed them during the long period of Covid-confinement (2020-21).

The “Public Toilet of Thoughts” was set up in three neighborhoods of Athens (Kypseli/Fokionos Negri str., Chalandri/St.Nicolas Central Square, Kaisariani/Skopeytirio Park) in July 2021. The documentation video for Box For Expression was publicly projected on September 28th at Akadimia Platonos park, during the closing event of the project.
