Rock engravings are among the oldest traces of human culture. To store information in a lasting way always was an urge of civilisation. By the time of their creation the engraved patterns, symbols and figures had some meaning and function, today this can be often only guessed or decoded with the knowledge of the historical context. ‘Hardware’ is a series of hand-sculpted stones, different sizes of rocks with technological objects and symbols engraved. For Tuned City this series will be extended by local stones, collected during walks around Mavromati and engraved with several symbols of sound media and their players of the younger history. ‘Hardware’ produces an archaeological contradiction, confronting notions of time, technology and memory.
