The words"Νησιά ουλές" means the scar of the island. Anyone can be anyone in island surviving trauma is something we do have experienced. People who have the wound or physical trauma problem were different from others, even their in the same space. It difficult because of the people's fear of disease, which causes them to automatically isolated the group that has the disease, just like the patient live on isolated islands.

This "Poetry Installation Book" provides the audience with an immersive and isolated environment. The audience feels loneliness from patients suffering from chronic diseases and solid tumours. This is about creating isolation after substantial tumour experience for the audience. While the traditional book focuses on the reading and documenting, this "book" seeks to activate other senses such as touching and smelling.

 

This work, including the book format (Binding) and book foundation (Narrative) together and explain the way to experience different feel when the audience isolated themself by reading one by one inside this work.
