Edwin Jakobs (NL) an interaction designer visual artist who uses code as his primary tool. He also is partner of RNDR, a design studio for interactive media that develops ‘tools’ that are only finished by how they are used.
To achieve this, They develop processes, create structures, design visualisations, code programs, and create interactions. The end result can manifest itself across different media, ranging from interactive installations, data visualisations, generative identities, prints and everything in between – often real-time. They are triggered by how information and technology transforms networks, cultures, societies, relationships, behaviours, and interactions between people.
RNDR was founded in 2017 in The Hague, (NL). Its main members have years of experience as partners, computer scientists, designers, and developers at LUST and LUSTlab.
One of their core projects, and basis for most of our projects, is OPENRNDR, an open source framework for creative coding –written in Kotlin for the JVM– with over seven years of development, that simplifies writing real-time audio-visual interactive software. OPENRNDR is fundamental for the work and software capacity of RNDR as a studio, as it allows us to realize complex interactive works.
Edwin is speaker at the Connected storytelling session
