Thijs Biersteker creates interactive art installations that turn topics about climate change, deforestation, and the Anthropocene period into relatable experiences rooted in facts and science. Thijs and his team work together with universities, research groups and companies to weave together humanity, technology and ecology into interactive experiences that create change. His immersive art installations are often described as eco-awareness art. By using the latest technologies, Thijs works to turn visitors into ocean plastic, to give a voice to nature using data coming from living trees, and to let the rainforest disappear in front of our eyes. Currently, Thijs is affiliated with Delft University of Technology (NL) where he teaches art, ethics and empathy. Thijs is the recipient of the prestigious Lumen Prize for digital art, was nominated for the Stars Prize from Ars Electronica and the New Technology Art Award.
