PNYX – democratic stairs, Fosen upper secondary school 2007

The title Pnyx refers to the stairs in the hills of Athens where the first democratic meetings were held. Words used in the stairs were recorded by making interviews with pupils who talked about what democracy meant to them. Examples of words used in the stairs are accentuated in the following pupil citations:

There's always some who dare to speak out loud, but there are many silent groups indeed”. “No one wants to be the good example in the class, it’s almost like being the nerd.” “To sit in a staircase, it's sort of in between all, a bit informal; it's a kind of freedom.

The meaning of the art work changes according to how pupils sit in relation to the texts. This scenography concept actively relates to time, movement and context.
