The video work aims at capturing the experience and the essence of the ephemeral site-specific installation Upon the Earth Under the Clouds as one walked through it.

Upon the Earth Under the Clouds is a large-scale site-specific installation conceived for the Old Mill and the city of Eleusis. Using water and soil as its core materials and ceramic pots as its dominant morphological feature, the work enters into a dialogue with the rich history of Eleusis, from antiquity to the long industrial history of the city and its present-day structure. Woven into its narrative are the myth of Demeter and Persephone, mortality, the notion of voyaging, the existential quest for a destination, and migration, not only as a defining feature of the city’s history but also as a repeated historical occurrence.

For the implementation of the project, in addition to the 1000 hand-made ceramic vessels designed by Danae Stratou and created in Thapsano village in Crete over a period of six months, 1800 cubic meters of soil were moved to the site, 100 cubic meters of water were used, while a total of 60 people worked.
