mr proj mitologiesMitologies derives from the Greek word "mitos," the thread Ariadne gave Theseus to help him find his way out of the Cretan labyrinth. The participants in Mitologies re-experience allegorically Theseus' journey, in an imaginary maze which experiments in combining this common element from different literary, artistic and historical references, including also Dante's "Inferno", the revelation of St. John, Durer's woodcuts after the revelation, and Borges' Library of Babel. The connections between the above sources are central to the unfolding of a "labyrinthine medieval narrative".

Mitologies was presented at ISEA 1997 as part of my Master in Fine Arts thesis (along with 'cleanse'). MFA committee: Daniel Sandin (video artist, chair), Irene Siegel (visual artist), Dana Plepys (video artist), Inigo Manglano-Ovalle (visual artist).

In 1998, Mitologies was included in the permanent collection of the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria.
