Demetris Shammas (b.1984) is a Cyprus-based architect–turned–information artist. He holds
a master’s degree from the Chair for Computer Aided Design at ETH Zurich and a Diploma of
Architecture from the NTU-Athens, and has taught algorithmic design at the ETH Zurich and at the Basel Academy of Art and Design. His work uses the poetic overlay of the digital and the natural, to form instances of ‘algorithmic experience’. It 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 a ‘de–coding of experience’ and finally a ‘re–composition of a virtual interpretation’ that can again be brought into the real.
