“When an idea materializes into paper and continues to magically transform into a deep red fabric, the only thing you can do is let go and follow your heart.” That’s the motto of the “Art of Making” episode, produced by Deep Green Sea. It aspires to “display and highlight people who go against the spirit of today’s pessimism and desperation. They dare to dream and create with zeal and imagination. Armed with passion for knowledge and emotion, they attempt to combine the precision of science with the elegance and resourcefulness of art. We thank them wholeheartedly for their contribution“.
The film presents Samantha Sotos work, who was born and raised in Australia, studied in Athens and London and worked in London and Sydney before moving permanently to Greece. In 2006 she opened her own studio which is situated in downtown Athens, Thissio. In walking distance from the Acropolis, Thissio merges the ‘yitonia’ (neighbourhood) of old Athens with a modern flavour of today.
A very inspiring document for any Doer or Fashion dreamer.
