New images for a new world using new tools for new machines.
Thomas Traum creates still and moving images using an explorative digital approach. We try to discover the unseen and new. We believe in the strength and purity of an idea and our aim is to deliver creative excellence. We have 10 years of experience working with clients from independent record labels to multinationals, from artistic commissions to global brand launches.
Our approach is based on the exploration and understanding of modern technology and find new and novel applications of it’s use in Design and Art. We used and successfully deployed projects using technologies and tools ranging from C++ to hollywood tested fluid simulations to real-time web services.
We were part of Creative Review’s ‘Creative Futures’ program and gave workshops at various universities including Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and the ECAL, Lausanne.
