‚Untitled (RO): On Geographies and Structures‘ was first shown in 2007, in Kappatos Gallery, Athens. In a detached room of the exhibition area, a large projection, a single take of a new built high-rise is shown. Intense urban sounds fill the space –  passing trains and cars and kids skateboarding under a railway bridge. A separate voiceover runs through two pairs of headphones that block the urban ambience and allow a voiceover narrative to fill the visitor’s mind. The work becomes a space of contemplation on migration as a structure of feeling, as displacement from familiar practices and habits and as a way of the body inhabiting (architectural) space.
