arts XR is an immersive production studio, by artists, designers and co-founders: Kristina Thiele, Alejandro Escobar and Chris Follows

Kristina, Alejandro and Chris met in 2016 at Chelsea College of Arts through the Digital Maker Collective (DMC), an informal creative tech Research and Development network. Through our work with the DMC and Tate Exchange we discovered that there is an increasing demand from creatives for ‘Immersive Solutions for the Arts’, as most content creators are not coming from an arts background.

Integration and adoption of 3D Immersive web is the primary challenge. Our aim is to raise the bar for Immersive Artistic Practices. Our mission is to make this technology more democratic for artists and art spectators by removing geographical, financial and political barriers as well as challenging existing aesthetic parameters set by developers outside the artistic context. This usually results in a visual language that would appeal to gamers and computer enthusiasts and not necessarily to an artistic audience.

We offer bespoke creative solutions for the arts, XR content production across all immersive workflows, from pre-production to full conception, consultancy, planning and delivery.
