A contribution for the Humanities Department of the University of Cyprus for their conference on “Boarders and Bridges in world Literature and Art” again touched upon the Nicosia division “1 border, 2 rusty bumpers, 3759mm yellow bridge”.
The “Worhship Container”, a proposal of the team for the Larnaca Biennale in 2018 was credited with a Finalists Award. In 2019 their Scattered Domes, work for the Paphos Almyra and Anasa hotels touches upon the current Akamas Peninsula situation.
