We who look for adventure everywhere

We're not your enemies

We want to give you vast and strange domains

Where mystery in flower spreads out for those who would pluck it

There you may find new fires colors you have never seen before

A thousand imponderable phantasms

Still awaiting reality

[…]

Pity us who fight always at the boundaries

Of infinity and the future

Public Issue #3:

Irini Karayannopoulou, passing by the world's most expensive avenue, states in public, through an unexpected performance, her own evaluation to what all of this means:

" Walking down 5th Avenue I come across a giant snake.

It' s made of thousands of lights and it sparkles luxuriously.

I am tempted, I want to touch it.

Irini Karayannopoulou, New York, Feb 2013."
