“Andreas Angelidakis is an architect and artist working at the intersection of digital culture and architectural production. He is one of the first artists that treated the internet as a real place, a site where he designed and built online communities such as the Chelsea Project and Neen World. He also designed and built spaces, intended to appear as computer renderings, sparking a discussion as to whether they were ever built (Pause Pavilion, Stockholm) and spaces that included a garden of mummified plants used as a virtual horizon for a laser beauty clinic (Forever Laser, Geneva). Angelidakis has realized projects in Sweden, Switzerland, USA and Italy as well as publications for museums and cultural foundations. angelidakis.com
