Seven chapters, video, stereo, color
MOMENTS THAT SHAPED THE WORLD I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII are the first seven chapters of a series of videos where the juxtaposition of images and sound modifies the perception and gives way to new meanings. A sort of personal visual diary composed by Melis with material sourced online inspired on his experiences in various socio-political contexts around the world.
Chapter IV - The Never Ending Story - 2015
The artist constructs a sharp and sarcastic montage of images of various demonstrations that took place in Greece during the recent years due to the crisis that hit the country in 2010, accompanied by sound taken from a frivolous travelog of a German girl who lost his suitcase during a trip to Greece.
