Mihalis Shammas is a Cypriot (b.1988) artist and designer.
His work is driven by an urge to create narrative objects and tools for musical expression. It explores the intricacies of movement and sound in animating materials, by manifesting tensions between the mechanical and the chaotic.
Amidst mechanical precision and poetic error,
his artifacts carry about the imaginary dimension of the useless machine,
their technical nature muddled by their narrative capacities.
