The Minotaur, the Cyclops, the Stymphalian Birds and more than twenty other monsters from the Greek mythology play, have fun and share their remarkable stories with the little “teratologists” who joined the educational program of The Greek Monsters exhibition!
Every Sunday, the Benaki Museum is full of our wonderful little friends who explore the exhibition in their own special way, learn by playing with the exhibits and create their own unique monsters with which they decorate the Museum’s café for the whole duration of the exhibition!
Our special educators have developed an alive and engaging program that captivates children by delving into mythology and creativity through play and theatre! But remember: The program is for Children Only!
The Little Monsters’ thunderous success from its very beginning has resulted in a total sell-out for the whole of its announced duration! So in order not to disappoint our little friends who want to participate, we extend the program until the end of July!
Book your “teratologist”’s place now and as always…
…Be(a)ware of the (little) Greek Monsters!
The little monsters educational program is on
every Sunday at the Benaki Museum – Pireos St. Annex

The software giant Microsoft commissioned BEETROOT to design a promotional video for its new cloud computing platform: Azure. BEETROOT visualized a contemporary business company in the form of a self-moving building-block toy that speeds-up in the “highway” of its market. In this condition, every tool that the company picks up in its way to fulfill its purpose becomes a new “block” that attaches to the original. The little automobile slows down as it gains more weight due to the many tools it needs to carry and is easily surpassed by its competition.
The Azure cloud computing platform appears to solve the problem in the form of a “deus ex machina” cloud that lifts the “weights” of the tools the company needs. The company carries on utilizing its tools’ benefits by simply connecting with Azure and without losing any of its “speed” In the extended version of the video, the success story of Exelgroup is visualized kinetically while “on” the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

Promotional video for the relaunch of the Google Art Project, the world’s largest digital art gallery. NOMINT's concept was to combine what we considered to be the two most interesting aspects of the Google Art Project: the immersive nature of the experience and the seemingly infinite-zoom into the paintings and the world of art.
