Creative technologist

Niels Janssen

My name is Niels Janssen and I’m an artist and creative technologist based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Through my work, I explore meaningful ways of applying digital layers in installations and performing arts.
I graduated from Utrecht University in 2005 where I got my master’s degree in Computer Science (MSc). As a multi-disciplinary professional, I’ve worked at a number of companies in large-scale software projects as a software engineer, designer, consultant, and trainer. In 2011, I founded VLIEGWERK, a creative technology studio which is fueled by my interest in art and interaction.
When I’m not absorbed in creating interactive art, I am likely spending time with my wife and two kids, hanging out with friends, or moving in a dancing studio.
