Fictions consists of video snapshots from the procession of the Epitaph in one of the Greek Orthodox churches in Chicago. In Fictions animated frames, repetitive symbols, crosses and flags are accompanied by the specific sound mix of church bells’ echoes and the Greek national anthem as a comment on the interrelations between religion and ethnic identity in their contact with the Other.
