The Map Is Not The Territory by StoryTellerF The Map Is Not The Territory by StoryTellerF
Self portrait

This map is an island of my memories till now. As you can see the coasts form my profile.
Inside this island there are six big areas:

-Family and Home
-School and University
-Army -Presidential Guard
-Friends
-Relationships and unfulfilled loves

Inside the borders of each area there are the memories I can recall of this sector of my life. Of course memories can change, there're more events to the future waiting to become memories, and push older memories into oblivion, or to dig up forgotten memories. Oh well, it's an island after all, you don't know what the waves will bring with them and the cities never stay unchanged.

Sorry for all of you non-Greek speakers, I guess you will have to wait for the english version of this map (If there is ever gonna be one!) to mess with my head...

I really love this piece. It inspires me, and reminds me to books with maps at the beginning.

Θα μπορούσα να είχα χρησιμοποιήσει έναν υπολογιστή μεταφραστή για να δείτε όλα τα μηνύματά σας, αλλά δεν μπορώ να δω καθαρά λόγια. Ωστόσο, μπορώ να πω, μου αρέσει το χάρτη.

Γεια σου Ιωάννα! Ευχαριστώ πολύ για τα σχόλια σου.
Η αλήθεια είναι πως μου πήρε αρκετά, είχαν προηγηθεί κάποια άλλα προσχέδια που στην πορεία άλλαξαν. Έπειτα η επιλογή των "αναμνήσεων" ήταν λίγο σκληρή, και στο να θυμηθώ κάποια γεγονότα αλλά και στο να παραμείνω αληθινός. Μετά προσπάθησα να έρθω σε επαφή με κάποιους χαρτογράφους και γενικά να μαζέψω υλικό που θα με βοηθούσε.
Εκτελεστικά ο ίδιος ο χάρτης νομίζω κράτησε περίπου 3 βδομάδες από ένα 4ωρο κατά μέσο όρο ημερήσιας απασχόλησης.
