Fantasy Plot Generator







 Fantasy Plot Generator is a new project comprised by the website (, a stage and a series of performances. It's a commission for the "Word of Mouth" exhibition, curated by Kernel for the 3rd Athens Biennale -"Monodrome". The website will be the base of the project where visitors invent character names and generate automatically a story with the function of a programming code. This code “borrows” extracted texts from different philosophical dialogues speaking about extreme concepts and social conditions, “remixing” them in a random way and different plots take shape. During the course of the AB3 few of these stories will be “animated” by actors in the exhibition space within a stage of borrowed furniture and costumes from the National Theatre. These perfomances will also take the form of an archive of fotonovelas that will be distributed from here further elaborating read and spoken concepts, a mind connection between space and time.

Actors: Alkistis Poulopoulou, Athina Mathioudaki, Babis Galiatsatos, Electra Nikolouzou, Maria Panourgia, Maria Tzani, Natasha Giannaraki, Nikos Maramathas,  Yorgos Kyriakou and more
