The space of the old abandoned railway station of Mycenae, a work created in 1890 by the architect Ernestos Tsiller, was the main source of inspiration for the creation of the work entitled <>. The work, in the form of an installation consisting of three parts, attempts to redefine the historical space, as each part of it has a symbolic character.

The two boxes reveal the concept of silence and conflict with the once noisy space, while at the same time memories of lived human existence come to life through the use of a subtle soundscape and soft lighting. The station seems to have a constant flow of life and a hidden dynamic in its atmosphere.
The third part of the work consists of paper birds made with the origami technique, from papers found at the station ticket office, symbolising travellers who, like the migratory birds, long to return to Mycenae.
