Timaeus is an artist focusing on speculative storytelling and worldbuilding narratives. He navigates this with the use of game-engine and 3D 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.

His work, consisting of video installations, live performances and layered animated works, has been exhibited at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Fiber Festival, Amsterdam Dance Event, Gogbot, Dutch Design Week, Felix Meritis, Red Light Radio, and more. Works have been published by De Gids and Daisyworld Magazine.

As of September 2022, Timaeus is supported by the Talent Development Grant of the Creative industries fund NL
