Owl of Athena

 

In Greek mythology the goddess of wisdom Athena is often depicted with an owl. According to the myth this owl would fly out every night to gather news and report back to Athena. This work is based on the personal stories of people I interviewed in Athens. I asked them to tell me about the smaller and perhaps more personal news—stories that I couldn’t have read in the newspaper because of their seemingly insignificant nature.
