[UN]FINISHED Temporary Office in Athens
invitation image to the audience/performers of the work
The event starts by the call to a specified audience. How does the intervention of a social event relate to the structure of a performance set up in a Master of Theater, while the participants are the ones studying and the surrounding pupil? OPERATED attempts to subtract the event from the event while developing it at the same time of staging it, directing it and interacting within its own logic. Where is the tension of the event once the audience can shift their position under a certain system of instructions within the accumulation of viewing?
The Open Air School was first publicly opened on the 31st of March 1931. Architects of the ‘Dienst Publieke Werken Amsterdam’ designed the building. The pupils of the school consisted of children with respiratory problems and the frail in need of rest and recuperation.

Inside the empty political context and conditions remodelling the sense of reality, a continuous temporal sequence of 'ν' hours, addresses the conciliation and parallel relationship of viewer and empty viewer reception as an apparatus space, as a space through indirect view and direct 'reality'.

14th December 2012 until 31 January 2013
On 3-12 December and within 24 active hours the puzzle group studies how the interaction with space can develop temporal sequence, focusing on the communication and miscommunication path.
The true power of theater is inseparable from the representation of the power of theater, even if that is a critical representation. [one less manifesto-Deleuze]
In reference that one perceive things that are not immediately evident... the viewer will experience an architectural representation of the brain scan, via the constant reconstruction of image and speech
Στις 3-12 δεκεμβρίου και μέσα σε 24 ενεργές ώρες η ομάδα puzzle εξετάζει το πώς η αλληλεπίδραση με το χώρο μπορεί να αναπτύξει χρονική ακολουθία, επικεντρώνοντας το ενδιαφέρον στη οδό επικοινωνίας και δυσεπικοινωνίας.
H πραγματική δύναμη του θεάτρου είναι αδιαχώριστη από την αναπαράσταση της εξουσίας του θεάτρου, ακόμη και αν αυτή είναι μία κριτική αναπαρασταση. [ on less manifesto-Deleuze ]
Δεδομένου ότι καθευαυτός αντιλαμβάνεται πράγματα που δεν είναι άμεσα εμφανή... ο θεατής θα βιώνει μια αρχιτεκτονίκη αναπαρασταση της σάρωσης του εγκεφάλου, μέσω της αναδιάρθρωσης της εικόνας όσο και του λόγου

Q: Mr Aymo-Boot, your designs are often commenting on the ideal of development through architecture. How does the use of projective space give existance to a physical space?
Q: Ms. Lalou, in your work the spectator is invited to enter into an experiment with his or hers mind as the main stage of action. How does the presence of the spectator introduce a mental space to the physical space?

The Operational Model lecture is an opening to the logic of a system of operations where a viewer becomes an observer, an observation point and again a director of the gaze with a fade out back to the system through direct feedback. The topic at stake is the performance act of ‘the looking’.

I AM A 'Φ'
By multiple times removing the experience of a rather significant original experience I AM A 'Φ' is a performance attempting to produce imagination of an existential state via its constant tension and repentance. Intention becomes tension and again intention. How does the platonic ideal, enhance the forth side of imagination? A piece that comes as the 5th circle of research based on the initial work of Maria Lalou - PUZZLE produced and performed at FROWN Athens on December 2012.

_ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ [UN]FINISHED has as protagonist the architectural archetype of the unfinished concrete building found everywhere in the Athens cityscape. These structures are exposing the concrete skeleton hidden under the facade finishes of the buildings composing the cityscape. They are signs of invisible financial and political structures defining the physical appearance of the city. With its character of a ruin of a forgotten purpose the unfinished building is at the same time pointing to the past and to the future. A frozen moment of time decaying ever since volume reached that concrete state. Within the context of ReMap4 _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ [UN]FINISHED addresses the inaccessibility, the potential of the unused space, and the relation of private and public.
