(The) Art (of changing) Direction

Timaeus is a cross-disciplinary creative and artist based in Rotterdam. With a believe in the art of changing direction, he works in a conceptual, forward-thinking approach, in collaboration with designers, artists, programmers, curators and thinkers on the implementation of change and new narratives. He specialises in digital media and works across a variety of outputs within the human computer interaction field.

His artistic practice focuses on speculative, visual narratives and imagery that derive from future-oriented thinking and altered realities. He is fascinated by myths, folklore, fantasy & futurism, and uses these topics as a start for visual explorations. He often collaborates with DJs, labels and producers and aims to establish a meaningful connection between visual narrative and experimental musical exploration.
