Felix Scholder is an information experience designer, working at the intersection of spatial installations and immersive technologies, such as virtual reality.

His practice takes an experimental approach to physical and digital materials, as well as environments to explore how the two can work in tandem with one another to convey stories and information. His most recent work has been researching embodiment and XR technologies as a new way of storytelling in exhibition environments.

He holds an MA in Information Experience Design from the Royal College of Art and a BA in Communication Design from University of Applied Science in Munich. Previously, he worked at ART+COM and neo.studio in Berlin.
