Obadiah 1:4 “But even if you soar as high as eagles and build your nest among the stars, I will bring you crashing down,” declares the Lord.
Within the context of the 4th Artists in Residence Program by Eagles Palace (Video Art/Moving Image Edition). Eagles Palace is a luxurious 5-star hotel, founded in 1973 in Ouranoupolis, Halkidiki a mere 4 km from the gates of Mount Athos which is known for its spiritual ambiance and majestic grandeur. Named after the symbol of Byzantium and Orthodoxy, Eagles Palace is pillared in its mesmerising location with monastic architecture and in perfect harmony with its natural environment.
The video is based on the logo of the Eagles Palace luxury hotel in Ouranoupolis, Halkidiki, from which all the graphic design elements have been removed except the stars. The perpetual switch from zero to five stars comments on the temporality of success and failure according to certain evaluation systems. The video is made for the TV monitors in the hotel rooms.
