(The mother city; white, blank, nonexistent, like the body of the dancer, the body of the possible - Composition for violin and electronics inspired by Michel Serres's book "Genesis").

and 2) video-choreographer Sophia Lycouris
(Garden as poem, human presence attuned within it - Video inspired by Ian Hamilton Finlay's garden project "Little Sparta", and filmed on location, http://www.littlesparta.org.uk).
