Nympholepsy is inspired by the immediate environment and history of ancient Messene. The work links the archaic with the contemporary by establishing a dialogue between the ethereal (sound) and the material (the ancient ruins). It is an exploration of the blurred limits between myth and history and the relationship between deities and human beings, nature and the supernatural.
