A Fresh View, a look into the Cyprus Problem

Ariana Vassilopoulou

A 360 Video installation that simulates the division of Cyprus, and shows the perspectives of the two communities – The Greek and Turkish Cypriots.



A Fresh View is an installation that places two viewfinders facing each other, separated by a what is known as a Green Line. Each viewfinder represents the perspective of two communities in Cyprus; The Greek and Turkish Cypriots. Each viewfinder is created by putting the google cardboard into them, showing the Green Line from each side in 360 degrees. I conducted interviews and created the 360 videos in Cyprus, and learned how people on both sides feel about the separation of the country, and how the physicality of the Green Line affects their daily lives. This is what is shown inside of these viewfinders.
