Athens Video Art Festival 2013 included 3 symbolic actions of artistic interference at the civil area, under the spirit of the motto "Living Athens". Particularly, with volunteers and artists' participation, Historic Center's streets were reconstructed, while street art decorated 15 stores.
Being a constant reminder of the upgrade resulting from the voluntary and creative activity of both the current situation dictates, we offered projects that enrich our senses color our lives and by extension our lives. The integration of planning the event held by a large mural that adorns most central building in the historical center of Athens.
The mural on Aghion Asomaton Street (JASON INN HOTEL) was created with the aim to motivate our perception as well as renew part of the Historic Center of Athens. Visual artist, Manolis Anastasakos by creating the artwork entitled «Some color for our city» is interested in triggering viewers and their critical thinking. This time he targets nature implying as tons of ink are wasted on sociopolitical events it would be good to shed a little color in the name of nature.
The artwork consists of a grey non-shaped environment that is colored highlighting the nature hidden in it. Each viewer is invited, through a dialogue with the artwork, to paint his/her own inner natural standard because nature, although forgotten, was, is and will always be the most hearten and the wisest teacher.
