Tim Vis is a video artist and performer with Strava origins who grew up in Germany as Tim Oberstätter.

Despite of the latest usual, he also likes to use old equipment or explore the electronic devices available on site and combine them with current technology to create unique digital art installations.

Tim Vis was born in 1975 and grew up in a Radio & TV shop. His experience that his father was a enthusiast hobby photographer and his mother beeing a seller of dance music might have lead him into live Visualism.

After finding that niche, he started VJing activities in 2005 and developed his own styles using the strange but powerful Textmachine3D VJ software to kind-of paint with light. After installations in 2006+2007, he did his own VJ Festival in Heidelberg in 2009 and 2010-2013 he was co-producer of B-Seite Festival serving there as the technical manager. He did several VJ Camps in Greece and offered technical support to other festivals.

Right now I am into installations again. In 2020 I created the scalable SpellTime Alpha platform with distributed centrally controllable Raspberry Pis including a recording booth. From it varieties emerge as adaptations to the wants.
