Currency

by Christos Polydorou

If you cut the shape of the island of Cyprus out of the map of the world and pin it in the middle of a large monochromatic page and shift from the bottom left corner and look at it diagonally to the upper left corner, you will see a platypus lying on its stomach its four legs spread out σαν το τάλαντο (currency), its bill pointing where it’s back would be if it was set spiritually and not geographically in this way still a platypus but now pointing toward our sister Egypt. A one hundred and eighty degree flip of an island to understand what the island is trying to say.
