Nikos Arvanitis
Surviving Desire
Sound, duration: 2 30, ballpen on paper, 2014

The artist uses, as primary reference material, a video recording of violent
clashes between demonstrators and the police during the demonstrations of the 12. February 2012 in Athens.

He analyzes the composition of the soundscape of the scene and reproduces it by combining voices and sounds from the use of everyday objects, recorded in a studio.
The final result consists exclusively of reproduced - artificial - sounds. The drawing is the script of the scene, where the visual plot and sonic texture of the primary material are recorded.
