Mihalis Shammas is a designer and sound artist from Cyprus.
His work is driven by an urge to create narrative objects and tools for musical expression. It spans over instrument making, performance, sound sculpture and installation work. In all these areas, he explores intricacies in motion and sound by animating simple materials, 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.
