Lazer-Cut Books on De-centralization

London based interior architect Myrtle Tzortzi has created two laser-cut books, which offer a critical view of the role of de-centralization in Greece. More specifically, her work explores how cultural habits are transported and transformed  in a period of economic crisis and social instability. Her two intricately designed books are the result of extensive fieldwork. Tzortzi interviewed people that have experienced de-centralization and she tried to narrate their journey in her books. As each book is opened and moved through, its pages affirm a temporal and spatial sequence, within which certain cultural traits are ‘carried over’ and others are abruptly lost.
