"Less Than Three" is a 36-pages book, which defines the Ancient Greek terms for attraction before the introduction of the word "love" as a common denominator for all the possible diversity in the infinite range of possible feelings and relationships between people. Each type of affection (eros, agape, paignidi, philautia, philia, pragma) is defined in the encyclopaedic form and accompanied by a poem. The text is printed in a circular shape, allowing to create from each perfect-square page an origami of individual rose. The 6 roses will be presented alongside with the book.  

It was developed by Avenir Institute upon invitation by Brazilian artist Sandra Cinto and Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) and will be on the permanent display in CAC from October 2017.
