"Grains" (of Mother Earth)
A poetic and inclusive digital performance by participants of Elefsis 2023 from near and far supported by solar power. This proposal is about a digital platform our team aims to create for Elefsis 2023. This digital platform is mirroring (hosting) both the essence of the historical mysteries (please see the Origins below) and the structure of the programme of Elefsis 2023 (please see the Goals below). The platform is hybrid because it involves art+tech, physicality and virtuality, professional audiences and local and international visitors, history and contemporaneity. Grains is a reference to doubling co-existence. Our environment is dark at the beginning, but as users, both professional and non-professionals, join the application their presence brings light to the virtual environment.
"Making the leap: Co-existing in Elefsis 2023 in the 6th dimension"
The mirroring of the city as a Cultural educational and creative real-time collective model of innovation. Curving more space, stretching the physical space of Elevsis in order to welcome notable audiences of this high-tech "wired" era on both a national and international level.
This is a service providing platform will merge audiences on three different realms depending on the position they hold in the world, thus experiencing will be site-specific or better, Elevsis-specific.

POWERED BY SOLAR PANELS IN ELEFSIS
Placing sustainability at the heart of every local activity, starting first by incorporating green practices into 2023 ELEVSIS. Light in enabling light.
Our goal is to shape a collective eco-consciousness in local and regional level, enhancing the already high awareness about the environment.
New technologies heavily burden the environment thus TTS will power our main server with the Elevsinian sun by enabling the use of our app from anywhere in the world.
