“Verily at the first Chaos came to be, but next wide-bosomed Earth, the ever-sure foundations of all the deathless ones who hold the peaks of snowy Olympus, and dim Tartarus in the depth of the wide-pathed Earth, and Eros (Love), fairest among the deathless gods, who unnerves the limbs and overcomes the mind and wise counsels of all gods and all men within them. From Chaos came forth Erebus and black Night; but of Night were born Aether and Day, whom she conceived and bare from union in love with Erebus.”

Hesiod, Theogonía, 116-125

The project narrates a route with 5 stops. Each stop is based on each chapter of my research paper * and promotes a different reading of the topos located between the Aegean and Ionian Sea. The chaotic incision of the Corinth Canal deconstructs and reconstructs through five points: topos, utopia, beauty, memory and (h)orion.
