The red island

During the 1960s, two major workers' housing projects started in the region of Viotia in central Greece, both linked to large-scale mining and industrial productions. The “Aspra Spitia” town (translated as “White Houses”) for alluminium-based production in the Southwest and Kokkino and Neo Kokkino villages (translate as “Red” and “New Red”) for nickel-based production in the Northeast. These two separate examples of industrial organization are not generally found in mainland Greece. With this ongoing project I want to document how life and landscape are connected to and affected by heavy industrial production in these two different areas.
