(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 storytelling and worldbuilding narratives. He navigates this with the use of game-engine software and works within the realm of virtual filmmaking/imagery and CGI (Computer Generated Imagery). He researches how creative technologies can help us to reimagine our present and future, surrounding the topics of ecology, technology and non-human agency. By introducing these topics to the fantastical and otherworldly, he strives for a form of storytelling that challenges the Anthropocentric point of view.
