Illustration “War 1990*” © Marina Kanavaki
In one of the first conquering missions in history,
the Persian military was destroyed when attacking the Greeks.
Since then, humanity has mourned many such defeats…
The tragedy continues…
This illustration was part of a broader project that included a video
created on a very primitive macro mind director [mac]
and using up most of Middlesex Poly’s [now University] computer memory to run it!
Inspired by Aeschylus’s “The Persians”.
How unfortunate to see history repeating itself again and again…
*1990 was the year when the Gulf War begun.
