 ABOUT THE FILM
“The video-art piece, titled Birds, is an incorporation of micro-sculptures and technology. […] The ‘heroes’ consist of dismantled ready-mades and ceramic elements. With metal spares, plastic objects and electronic parts as primary material, Spartalis mobilizes a ‘robotic sculpture’ to the service of a peculiarly ecological tale. […]
Through witty conceptions and reversals, small battles are given, aiming at the re-mapping of the relations between the environment, technology and society.”

Excerpts from the critics
“…I distinguish Angelos Spartalis both for his multileveled search in the field of plastic arts and for the deep spirituality of his approach to his themes (or, I should better say, his obsessions).” [...] Manos Stefanides- Art Historian /Curator, National Gallery of Greece (from the text “Angelos Spartalis /The Image and its Meaning”) Critic
