I grew up in a diverse family of Greek, American, Spanish and Russian influences. Early on I decided that I would like to go into the creative fields and my first choice, mainly due to limited choices in the Greek educational system, was to study architecture. Halfway, I decided that the way architecture was taught in Greece was not suitable for me and that I wanted to be able to move between scales, from that of a space to that of an object. I continued my studies in the United States, at the University of Minnesota where I graduated (2012) from the Design in Architecture department. After working as a freelance architect and designer for one year I decided to follow up with a master’s degree in the Design Academy in Eindhoven, where I received a Master of Social Design in 2015. Most of the projects I work on focus around ideas of perception, illusion and spirituality as well as food and the social and political dimensions of it. I communicate the story through the use of video and performance. The objects that I design, I don’t consider products, but props that facilitate and guide the plot of the fictional narrative.
