Performed in the North London Greek Cypriot community, Dr. Zorbas is a  public performance, which addresses the issue of quantity in relation to Greek National pride. The performance took place outside a Greek Orthodox Church on a Sunday, where the community was challenged to be measured through a machine that inflates your balloon depending on how much "Greek pride" your body exudes. It uses galvanic and oscillometric technology to measure the user's reaction while watching a short sequence of film and imagery of proud Greek moments and figures. The reaction is then quantified into air and released into the balloon: The bigger the Greek pride the bigger the balloon.
Performance: St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, Edmonton, London, June 2008
