Nassia Inglessis is an artist and designer originally from Greece, she creates a beautiful and amazing sculpture which expands as you walk through it. This sculpture called “Disobedience” was built over 9 months by her and a team of engineers. The sculpture is 56 feet long, about 10 feet tall, and can expand up to 5 feet as it engulfs its visitors when they walk through it. She is the co-founder of Studio INI, an experimental design studio.
The design engineers at Studio INI (London | Athens) led by Nassia Inglessis couple rigorous design research with public engagement to create experiential installations. Studio INI’s Greek Pavilion is a 17m long kinetic wall that challenges our perception of architecture as something static, or emotionally inert.
Disobedience has been used throughout history to describe the Greek temperament. From the cautionary tale of Icarus to Antigone, to Prometheus, Greek mythology shows a hero who disobeys the gods yet obeys his moral obligation to humanity and creates an opportunity for its progress. It remains a potent theme for Greece at a time when the country is in the process of reinventing itself. You can appreciate more the work on the images and video we post.
