heracl.esan identity on the web

Hello,
I’m Heracles Papatheodorou, a maker, digital creative and licensed architect (dipl. School of Architecture, NTUA) based in Athens, and work in the fields of cultural production, design, media arts, architecture and web development. My current research interests encompass digital games, artistic practices and the relationship between the digital and society.

fickle spiderweb
on thin cirrus anchored
things change
things break

I work as Digital Development & Policy Coordinator at Onassis Stegi in Athens. I used to tell stories and craft interfaces at citytales.eu, sometimes rendered visualisations with weRender.eu, still scarcely write about videogames on LegendaryPKMN.net and lead R&D in DEBTRON.xyz.

       without a body
disembodied bodies
       of dismembered
            remembrances
Opinions and thoughts;
           words and codes;
           pictures and imprints;
    everything:
    obsolete as time
            flies by.

Ephemera

What can stand the trial of time? What thoughts? What words? To overcome a mountain they say, you don’t get to be looking at the top but where you step at. Even as I type these lines, that dreaded feeling of a mind creating figments instead of fruits of truth cannot be escaped. It is the fleeting imperfection, the never-ready or ready-as-ever way of thinking that the web enables and us ought to embrace. Ephemera will virtually vanish as new things replace them. Things can be short texts, images, links… This is a beggining to share with as little hesitation as posible. Here’s to letting thoughts free as a current, the current through which they travel and light up rectangles in front of you.
