Demetris Shammas (b.1984) is a Cyprus-based architect–turned–information artist. He employs data as compositional tools, overlaying the digital onto the physical to form instances of algorithmic experience. While following a seemingly rational path, his work is driven by an attraction towards the unrepresentable, the unbuilt; by an eagerness to examine the possible as that which can never be fully captured. The steps are themselves uncertain and mixed with arbitrarily set rules, as they follow at first a recording of experience, then an encoding of experience and finally the synthesis of a virtual interpretation that can again be brought into the real.
