While obviously ADAF – Athens Digital Arts Festival is standing for continuity since its foundation in 2005, Athens is standing also for the contrary – discontinuity, which the events, venues and organisations give evidence Wilfried was connected with since 2002.
Today, in 2017 a venue appeared thanks to Festival Miden (Kalamata) and Gioula Papadopoulou, by name TwixtLAB. It is the occasion for Wilfried to visit Athens for the first time, and made up his mind about Athens through pre-judications, Wilfried is more than positively surprised, he likes Athens very much. He is staying in a small (but clean!) hotel, close to the historical museum and he meets for the first time some of his virtual friends as physical persons like Anna Hatziannaki, Florentia Oikonimidou and Gioula Papadopoulou who all spend some time with him making his stay comfortable and pleasant. Yes, Wilfried is thinking, if he would be 30 years younger, he would love to spend some longer time in Athens, which has a good creative spirit. But the travel to Athens is the first one after his heavy accident in January 2017, and walking around very much is unfortunately not possible, and for exploring Athens good feet and legs are required.
