Archistophanes (AIA) is an award-winning architect based in New York City working at a range of scales from temporary event installations to residential and commercial design. Prior to founding Reality Cues, Archistophanes worked for leading architectural offices in New York, Chicago, and Portland, specializing in high-end residential, hospitality and tower design.
The work of Archistophanes focuses on the intersection between architecture in the built world and digital, interactive, and social media space, where ownership is communal and subject matter changes as quickly as users can click the ‘share’ button. Within this culture of reposting, reblogging, and retweeting is the opportunity to modify and subvert prevailing tendencies. Combine this with the ease with which anyone can alter images to create virtual worlds, and you are left with an increasingly fuzzy area between the so-called virtual and real.
