Know Thyself (γνῶθι σεαυτόν) is an audiovisual performance in which interpretations of Greek mythology are improvised. The work can be divided into three parts including Know Thyself, Greek Dancer, and Towards Kefalonia. During the solo performance, the audience is witness to a hybrid of resampled iconic greek imagery with live hand drawn animations. Both performer and computer collaborate via custom built software and hardware to capture the sprit of an ancient culture within a contemporary context. An artistic melding of past and present become possible with innovations in new media and technology. In Mythos (Know Thyself) both moving image and sound attempt to create a new modality of storytelling.
