Timo Arnall

Timo Arnall is a designer and researcher working with emerging interactive technologies and visual media. Timo has led an international research project called ‘Touch’ that investigated the applications of new (and often invisible) radio-based technologies in common products and services. As part of this project, new techniques were invented across photography, animation, motion graphics and live-action that explored the visualisations of technology in context.

At Oslo Lux, Timo will talk about light-painted photography as a technique that has been historically used to reveal the immaterial qualities of things and behaviour, and has been recently taken up as a film-making technique by artists and researchers. Alongside this he will present some recent visualisations, including photographic lightpainting of radio fields and the use of iPads for architectural typography and lettering.
