Tim van Cromvoirt (1988) grad­u­ated in 2011 at the AKV| St.Joost acad­emy in Art & Technology. For his grad­u­a­tion project ‘Ther­mophores’ he received the St.Joost pen­ning for best grad­u­a­tion project and earned a place in the pres­ti­gious HOT100 (the 100 best alumni in the arts, media and tech­nol­ogy) His work which is set in the increas­ingly impor­tant field of art and sci­ence, is seen by the jury as intrigu­ing and mys­te­ri­ous, tech­ni­cally com­plex, but most of all enchanting. Influenced by a fas­ci­na­tion for biol­ogy and liv­ing organ­isms he uses tech­nol­ogy to breath life into his arti­fi­cial organ­isms. His work doesn’t rep­re­sent super-realistic –true to nature– objects but rather an impres­sion of a liv­ing being.

Last year Tim spoke on a TedX con­fer­ence about his work which can be seen on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpQRUe3uHow
