Kristof Timmerman is chairman and coordinator of MAXlab, the research group on the interaction between art and digital technology of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. As a promoter and researcher, he is involved in various research projects on virtual and augmented reality, often in a multidisciplinary context. He is affiliated with the Immersive Lab of the AP University of Applied Sciences and Arts and annually organizes the summer school 'Storytelling in Virtual Reality. An Immersive Encounter'.
Timmerman studied Product Development, Theater Science and Film and Video Art. He worked for several theater companies, including the experimental company CREW and founded the artist collective Studio POC, which produces digital art projects.
The aim of this project is to indicate the needs of companies and organizations concerning their use of immersive media (VR, AR, MR, 360° video, hologram). Besides we are doing experiments to find the parameters that stimulate the user exprience of the audience and this through new combinations of visual and narrative techniques and smart objects.
