Finished Cypriot Ruins


Finished Cypriot Ruins by Gabor Stark, 2016

Spending a few days in Cyprus to preassemble the PolyCatOikia, I was intrigued again by the countless abandoned construction sites on the island. Above, the first iterations of what may become a longer series of ‘finished’ investment ruins. In each collage an architectural element of the found situation is cloned, multiplied and stacked to translate the conditions of incompleteness, pause and failure into an alternative speculative future.
