Joachim is an animator, designer and theater maker. Joachim grew up with theater and fell in love with narrative art. Early on, Joachim discovered how to convey a story and a feeling through animation. He focused on animating and has been researching various animation applications ever since.

Joachim sees a clear connection between theater and animation; they are both narrative and visual expressions. These expressions are highly dependent on suggestion and abstraction. By combining new media and interactive art with theater and animation, Joachim shows how these expressions reinforce each other.

Joachim often draws his concepts from philosophical ideas of various thinkers. By linking philosophy to interactive work, Joachim tries to make these ideas accessible to a wide audience.
