Sylvain Vriens in his natural habitat

Hello there.

I am Sylvain Vriens and I am a programmer, developer, coder, creative technologist (or whatever the hip kids are calling it these days), creating interactive installations for over a decade.

I work for visual artists, theatre companies, museums, advertising agencies and many more. Besides my work as a developer I work at the University of the Arts Utrecht, teaching students how to create interactive theatrical experiences. I give lectures and workshops about art, computers and electronics.

My goal is to create fun, immersive experiences where the technology feels natural and becomes invisible at the same time.

I studied Media Technology back in the day and worked at several companies before starting my own.

Over the years I worked with many platforms and languages, including (but not limited to): Processing, openFrameworks, Cinder, Arduino, Nodejs, iOS, Android and Max/MSP.
