Thanos Samarinas

Country: Greece

Thanos is a Copenhagen based web designer. He is currently working as a freelancer and since 2009 is part of a small web design/development firm named paramana.com.

His passion for the Web overtook his previous education in Electronic Engineering at the Technological Educational Institution of Athens, Greece and in Media Technology and Games (Design and Analysis) in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In his thesis he focused on the illumination of 3D ludic virtual environments, where drawing on theoretical principles from Cinematography, Theatre, Interaction Design and Architecture, he proposed a design toolbox for illumination designers to formally aid player navigation.

His intention is to push his interest on interactivity from virtual environments to the physical world. He endeavors to explore the variety of possibilities for interaction of the analogue universe, deploying light as a medium in an attempt to create immersive and mind blowing interactive experiences.
