The Onassis Foundation released the official Tuned City Messene 2018 documentation video, produced by White Room.
Nympholepsy is inspired by the immediate environment and history of ancient Messene and was premiered on June 3, 2018 at Tuned City. The CD was released December 21, 2019.
During Tuned City – Messene (2018), architects Christian Espinoza and René Rissland established an experimental structure based on Le Corbusier’s Dom-ino House as part of their research during the festival. The structure is comprised of the concrete framing of an unfinished house. Espinoza and Rissland generously invited people to use it as they imagined. Lanterner (Steve Bates and Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt) proposed a series of live improvisations with the other artists who have participated here.
In 1914 Swiss architect Le Corbusier designed his Dom-ino System. This Construction System was to be completely independent of the floor plans of the house, thereby giving freedom to design the interior configuration. Long before Dom-ino Le Corbusier began his career with studies about Greece. In fact he was fascinated by the ancient architecture of the Greek Polis.
Marc-Alexandre Reinhard put an extensive documentation of his project Act as Fate Wills, Destruction Comes online. One hundred micro interventions were performed in the ruins of the Temple of Zeus on Mount Ithomatas and at various locations on the archeological site of Ancient Messene.

Performative installation programmed to operate 24 continuous hours. Within this time frame, an algorithm modulates amplitude and increase resonant qualities of 16 channels of white noise. 2 surfaces of 310x230cm were designed and installed in relation to the architecture of the exhibition space. The surfaces rotate independently in a fixed angle, acting as passive filters.
