//Battle of Marathon A.D.:Two men fight with each other over a last bucket of drinking water. When thirst and destruction from their war reaches a peak, one of them decides to climb the wall behind them. When reaching the top he realizes that it’s a dam hiding a lake on the other side. Ten ghost construction workers of the dam appear and start a vertical decent, carrying a long pipe that pours water from the lake to the burning war field at the bottom.

//Marathon Dam: A performance around a temple at the dam’s base (copy of “Athenian Treasury” of 490 BC). A man sees on the walls of this temple three ways of his dying: dying by forest fires, by soil erosion and by the melting of the glaciers. He resists these (video) projections of his future and decides to cover the walls that speak only of catastrophe, with 60 m. long array of spring plants, that he brings from the top of the dam.
