Elias Naphausen studied interactive media (bac) and interactive media systems (ma) at the University of applied Sciences Augsburg. After his studies he is living and working in Augsburg.

Additionally to his work as research associate at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg at the Hybrid Things Lab he is creating experience-rich media installations, worlds of sounds and virtual rooms. Elias is exploring associations between mind, eyes, ears, haptic and olfaction. He is trying to get to the bottom of feelings, visual and physical phenomenons and interpersonal relationships. Sometimes his work ist tending to bear upon research, sometimes it is just about perception.

Elias has shown his work on different locations such as Chaos Computer Congress, lab30, and Asche zu Farbgut Festival.

Elias is using a wide range of tools, such as C++, openFrameworks, Processing, Unity, different web technologies, microcontrollers, professional camerasystems and self built hardware. If no tool is suitable for the task, it’s time to learn another one, or to build one (for example with a 3D printer). To get lost in soundscapes Elias uses different types of analog and digital synthesizers and effects.
