The aim of this thesis is to create an installation in the Old Slaughterhouse, a place in the outskirts of the city of Volos.
Slaughterhouses which were accommodated in two industrial buildings are now abandoned. In this place there is a small river, named Mpourmpoulithras. By this time the whole site is turned to be a fen.
The purpose of this project is to find out the reasons and ways to make this site familiar through its “uncannity” and make it again a part of the contemporary identity of city of Volos, not as a slaughterhouse but as a place that has his own history and memory.
The search is splitting in two directions. On the one hand there is the site that is analyzed in 3 different axes: memory present situation and imagination. On the other hand is human as receiver and as a carrier of embodied memories and lived experiences.
