The “invisible order” that embodies shapes

Project: +άπτω  

Human history is intertwined with the development of social fabrics and the creation of web-like grids which form a human, social, super-organism” endowed with its own physiology and functions.

However, the exact structure of the network that surrounds us and the exact nature of what flows in it, affects us.  The hidden influence of a social network affects the quality of our lives, our emotions, our relationships, sometimes and our personal prosperity. Social networks can be rearranged over time. Also, digital technology is creating new ways to connect and share. It is surprising the dynamic of Social networks and the way they intertwine human relationships. How our social network relationships affect our deeper personal connections? How Internet has encouraged the development of new types of connections that were not previously possible?

By seeing ourselves as part of this “invisible order”, as a “nod” within a social networked “super-organism” in which we live and create, we have the opportunity to re-examine our choices and experiences from a different perspective.

TheSeries Synapsis, Network, includes 14th print works. However, the important feature of this project is the new image, in which digital technology assumes an important role.

Photography encounters printmaking in a wide field of research, through the use of digital technology as a creative tool, which gives a new birth to the existing image.The manipulated digital image, is also associated with new methods of digital printing and inks, linking the tradition with the new, broadening the expressive means at the level of research.

The word “synapse” – from the Greeksynapsis (σύναψης), meaning “conjunction”, in turn from συνάπτειν (συν (“together”) and ἅπτειν (“to fasten”)) – was introduced in 1897 by the English neurophysiologist Charles Sherrington in Michael Foster‘s Textbook of Physiology
