It is designed to function as a diverse orchard, water harvesting system and soil generator while providing tangible stimuli for all the senses in a space where one can see, breath, smell, walk, rest, eat, contemplate and be inspired on the multiple forms of the inseparable connection between humans and nature.

Daphne and Apollo is an ecoart installation in the heart of Athens. It links the old with the contemporary modernism on a conceptual level by bridging the new Acropolis Museum with Sigrou Avenue both landmarks of their own era. The material chosen is Laurus nobilis, an evergreen sclerophyll charged with symbolic values regarding the struggle nature (Daphne) to survive the conquer of the human intellect (Apollo). Material selection is mainly based on Laurus nobilis enhanced abilities to withstand environmental stress as drought, air pollution, heat and wind while purifying the polluted urban air.

Artist bio
Environmental artist, curator and educator Stamatina Palmou formally studied Photography (DipHE & BA Honours Photography, Midlessex University) and Art Psychotherapy (MSc foundation, Art Psychotherapy, Hellenic Art Psychotherapy Center). An infinite learner, she continued to pursue informal and self studies in the field of ecology, environmental management and planning. She started exhibiting during her initial studies as early as 1998. She now works internationally as a fine artist as well as an environmental curator with an educational focus on numerous green development projects.

Retrospectively, the body of her work functions within the frame of the Social Sculpture and employs various media such as installation, performance, photography, and design. The accumulation of field experience and data research on complex natural systems over the years led her to experiment on creating resources rather than merely utilizing them. Her materials of choice have focused to earth, wind, fire and water. In cross pollinating between their endless forms and combinations Stamatina seeks to generate a symbiotic, solution orientated mindset towards the environmental, economic and social issues of our time. The result of her grafted practice is a diverse spectrum of works from earthen buildings, urban forest interventions and lectures to workshops, exhibitions and agricultural landscapes.
