2011 wishes / installation art

From: 20.12.2010 To: 29.12.2010 Share

The installation, "2011 wishes", housed in EDW from December 29, 2010, is an initiative of the designer Mr. Stavros Kypraios for charity manners. The project consists 300 christmas balls, wich were painted one by one from the priceless help of designer and artists. The incomes from the sell of the balls will be donated to the non profitable organisation EDRA, active in the field of Mental Health and Mental Retardation.

The idea
300 silver Christmas balls are being painted by volunteer designers and artists. Then being hung at different heights and widths in the E.D.W. space, with twine from the ceiling. As a result, with a first look we have lots of Christmas balls placed randomly in space. But if the spectator stand at a certain point of perspective, balls form the figure of 2011. The project is supported by the Greek Graphic Designers Association E.D.W., Budweisser beer & EDRA.

Installation opening for the public
On December 29, 2010 at 19:00, the E.D.W. will open its doors to the public for the first time, for the installation "2011 wishes." All Christmas balls will be available for sale. There won’ t be a specific price for each one. The non profitable organisation EDRA will accept any amount of donation. The project will be unsetted slowly with the gradual acquisition of balls. As a gift from the designer who edited the entire project, envelopes and greeting cards of theinstallation will be given.
