Misplaced Measure

Signe/Thanasis is a partnership developed to spark conversations between people, culture and the world we live in. Initiated in 2018, the collaboration was formed to combine our backgrounds in order to question conventional design norms.

Her previous projects include the scale of memorials, airports, performance pieces, and land art, including the Changi Jewel Airport, the Memorial for Victims of Gun Violence, and installation of the Water Project by Oscar Tuazon.
