Procession (in progress)

Procession is a process that follows an invisible subject along the trajectory of the ancient road called Iera Odos, stretching 18km from Athens to Elifsina. It is a search for meaning by physical effort, walking in psychogeographic mode across a varied urban terrain. This is not a tale of two cities but rather the space in-between.

In The Colossus of Maroussi, Henry Miller writes: “At Eleusis one realizes, if never before, that there is no salvation in becoming adapted to a world which is crazy. At Eleusis one becomes adapted to the cosmos. Outwardly Eleusis may seem broken, disintegrated with the crumbled past; actually Eleusis is still intact and it is we who are broken, dispersed, crumbling to dust. Eleusis lives, lives eternally in the midst of a dying world.”
