As an interactive artist Thijs Biersteker creates awareness installations about the world most pressing issues. He seamlessly combines science and technology to deliver an empowering experience that is accessible both intellectually and technologically.
His large-scale immersive art installations are a surprising mesh of data, analog elements, digital visuals, kinetic motion and virtual reality that explore the gap between the physical and digital, data and emotions, industry and nature.
His work is framed between eco-art, awareness art, Interactive installation art and light art.
His work provokes thought about sustainability, celebrates the good use of data, lets our brain waves overcome diversity and turns your movements into the plastic ocean trash. He produces his work in a conscious way with talented teams that share the same vision on a circulair and sustainable future.
Currently, Thijs is artist in residence at the Technical University of Delft. He has been named in the Dutch top 12 most influential media people of 2017.
