Description: Polyeco Contemporary Art Initiative is a non-profit organization that aims to raise environmental awareness through contemporary art and more specifically, animation. While creating the new office of Polyeco the PCAI Art Collection played a prominent role and features works by some of the most prominent contemporary International and Greek artists (Yorgos Drivas, Wu Tsang, Mika Rottenber etc). The presentation of the collection in the workplace was a challenge as the works are mostly animated. Simultaneously, the result we wanted to accomplish with the curation of the collection in the offices, had to be in line with the values of the Organization and Collection: dynamic, contemporary, and innovative with strong environmental values present. For this purpose, a series of applications were used for the photographic presentation of the artworks as well as different ways of projecting videos that showcased the ideal design approach of space by the architect Margarita Chatzakou.
