...a piece dedicated to everything is washed by the seas...
The video is taken in the Aegean Sea, on Paros Island, Greece, in the Fall of 2015.
Net is made by crocheting found pieces of fishing nets, nautical ropes, strings, and seaweed washed at the seashores of the Greek islands of Paros, Naxos, and Amorgos, and at the seashores of the Pacific coast in the US.
Sound is made from different documentaries about refugees coming from Africa and Asia, who survived with the help of the many volunteers at the coasts of the Greek islands Leros, Kos, Ios and Lesvos, and in Italy, in 2015.
