Joris Weijdom

HKU Media and Performance Laboratory (MAPLAB)
Founder, Head of research
Utrecht, The Netherlands
Joris founded MAPLAB in 2012. He is responsible for the research subjects and – methodology and the ongoing development of the Performance Engine tools. His core focus is connecting people, means and methodology in practise-led co-creative research processes. His background being 3D computer animation, he loves to combine real and virtual environments and enabling the creation of interactive mixed-reality experiences.

Joris is always looking for the ‘inter’ in everything: inter-disciplinarity, inter-connectivity, inter-action and inter-faces. He learned from experience that sharing ideas and concepts through ‘sketching’ an interactive mixed-reality environment is a powerful and effective approach for creative research, design and development. Being able to quickly manifest ideas through interactive spatial prototypes stimulates experimentation and possibly true innovation.
