Welcome to Bliss. Here, on my web page, you can see some photos, read articles and access the archived Three Corners Geocities home page.

I've made websites since 1990s. Back then, we were inspired by progressively expanding accessibility of the Internet and new ways of information sharing. I joined the HTML Writers Guild and participated in the GeoCities - a domain of, as we used to call, personal home pages. As an Athens community leader, I was helping others to build and maintain their websites.

That project went on until Geocities was acquired by Yahoo! Inc. in 1999 and became the third most popular site on the web. But then it was discontinued and all our pages were deleted from Yahoo's servers.

Archived in 2001, now the Three Corners rests here.

Time after time, while this website was dormant, I was thinking of a new layout, had some nice ideas, but none of them have ever worked out. And when I was about to give up, I read John Allsopp's Dao of Web Design and Ethan Marcotte's Responsive Web Design, and at last that Chattanooga Choo Choo of my inspiration took off. And I jumped in to find myself in a Maeklong train that in the next few days slowly transformed into Stimela.

So, eventually, this is what I've got. And to begin with, in the real world, I am from Armenia, a wonderful ancient country, full of colours.

Colours of Armenia

There are many famous Armenian painters. Some of them are famous also for their rich palette, and every Armenian knows Sarian, Minas and Roslin.

Photography

Henri Cartier-Bresson, who is often referred to as the father of modern photojournalism said, "In photography, the smallest thing can be a great subject."

Posting just in case.

Colours of Armenia

There are many famous Armenian painters – Ivan Aivazovsky, Arshile Gorky, Hakob Hakobian, Garzu, Hovnatanian dynasty, Hakob Kojoyan, Sargis Pitsak, Martiros Sarian...

Sarian believed that his goal was to achieve the outmost expression with simple means, doing away with the half-tints of compormise. He wrote, "Colour is everything, it is a real wonder. Colour should express our understanding of the essence of life... With colour I can get a stronger hold on what I see, and add the resonance of light in my paintings." (M. Sarian Flowers, Moscow, 1997)

Publications

Sociology is the main field of my research interest. I studied media, communication, culture, and community development.

Currently, one of my fields of interest is cultural diversity and multicultural society. In my previous publications, I explore the participatory phenomenon of community building in response to local challenges and analyse the processes of civic organizing, creating or strengthening social connections and building common values.

In addition to research, I train government officials and representatives of civil society, provide consulting, and evaluate projects.
