About

Teaching Unity 3D and C# for HoloLens, at Kosen in Kagoshima, Japan, 2017.

Joel Dittrich AB

I’m a Software Developer & Technical Artist. I work with 3D Visualization and immersive experiences, i.e. Virtual and Augmented/Mixed Reality, Animation and Projection Mapping, Interactive A/V Installations, Artificial Intelligence, and general Technical Direction.

I have 22+ years of full-time creative-technical experience, running my own business for 12+ years. I’m based in Stockholm and Berlin, and travel the world frequently for work and play. I’m available globally!

Background

2008 – 2018 I was freelancing, and teaching at universities in Sweden, Germany, Japan, China, Taiwan, and USA. I also worked in Canada, France, and Italy. I was employed part-time as Associate Professor (2010/2013 – 2017).

I’m educated at Konstfack University in Stockholm, Sweden, where I studied the Teacher Program on Art, Design and Visual Culture (2004 – 2009). I also studied The Fourth Dimension: Video, Space and The Broken Screen, at School of Visual Arts, and Abstracting the Figure, at Parsons, in New York City (2010).

I’ve independently studied books and online courses extensively since 1998, which is what really gives me an edge!
