Reconfiguring motions is a research project developed by our artist in residency Leontios Toumpouris, that involved interrelationsof walking and making, migration and land. Leontios experimented with the 3D scanning of rocks, fossils and hand gestures as well as 3D modelingto test the incorporation of these processes into his work and allow them to inform his material-based studio practice. Transitioning between manual making and digital procedures as well as workingin the studio and outdoors, Toumpouris negotiated ideas of movement, communication and connectivity.
The culmination of the work developed duringhis residency will be presented in a solo exhibitionthat consist of a video installation and sculpturesat Korai, Nicosia. In addition, his method of working was shared with the public at TMS throughan artist talk and a workshop for students fromthe University of Nicosia.
