CM: The Highway of Horizons by Harris Kondosphyris belongs to a series of works entitled Architectural Landscape, which studies the effect of matter in empty space. Kondosphyris uses cement as a typical urban material. With this material he designs the architectural vacuum. For Kondosphyris organizing the content of vacuum is the main point about architecture. He says characteristically "one must calculate the void of something in order for this something to obtain the substance."

In the present Architectural Landscape there are three successive levels of which the rear right and left move. The viewer is invited to interact by opening the levels towards any direction and as much as s/he wants. The Highway of Horizons is a non-representational work that makes the viewer suspect s/he encounters a landscape of a highway. In essence this artwork is a visual game about the gaze, because by changing the positions of the side sections also alters the position of the viewer's relationship with the junction of the highway.
