About Daphne
Daphne is a site-specific installation situated within the tunneled stairway that interplay with the notion of concealing and revealing the ancient walls of the tunnel leading to the peak of Kasteli. Made entirely of self-supporting paper panels, the enclosure intervenes the visitors' perception of the existing condition as a container of conglomerated memory. LED lighting contained within the panels will illuminate during nighttime that expresses the different perception.
