Shammas Demetris

Demetris Shammas is a Cyprus–born architect and computational designer, whose data–driven processes explore the intersection of technology, art, mathematics and philosophy. While following a seemingly rational path, his work is driven by an attraction towards the un-representable, the un-built, 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 a ‘de–coding of experience’ and finally a ‘re–composition of a virtual interpretation’ that can again be brought into the real.
