Intro
In Greece, there are 6,000 islands, islets and rocks. These holy seascapes connect spiritually, mentally and materially their inhabitants through the images that feed the senses. The second edition of The After Joya Effect is inspired by the uniqueness of this physical experience in 6000 fragments.

The After Joya Effect * is an exhibition that took place for the first time at Popeye loves Olive - Art Space. It aimed for the interaction and the transformation of individuality to collaboration, diversity to unification and exchange to sharing and was inspired by the jewelry exchange in Project01 that held in Joya 2013.

This year, every participating artist created a unique (unreleased) piece, inspired by the “6000 Fragments – The Floating Islands” project. During the event, once again, the public will vote for their favorite artist, who will be invited for a solo exhibition at Popeye loves Olive. The winner of “The after Joya Effect” First Edition, 2014 was Jorge Manilla.

*The idea was to promote the Joya Project in Greece (artists selected by “Le Department” and exhibited in Joya Exhibition in October 2013 - 2014).

Inspiration:
In Greece, there are 6,000 islands, islets and rocks. These holy seascapes connect spiritually, mentally and materially their inhabitants through the images that feed the senses. The five basic human physical senses are; touch, hearing, smell, taste and vision. These senses undoubtedly form the basis for the creation of an artwork.

Every day, we experience stimuli that we usually ignore. Modern life attacks on our senses, and our body, implements the only defense mechanism that it has; not paying attention to the signals it receives what so ever. This limits both perception and pleasure we derive from our senses. The Ancient Greek philosophers considered the human senses as “windows of the soul”. The senses, in connection with the mind and thought, provide information, thus creating a reflection and interpretation of the world.
