Daniël Ernst is an interactive illustrator based in The Netherlands. After working in the game industry for multiple years he decided to put his research on storytelling through illusions and his love for everything 3D into practice and apply it to VR.
This amalgamation resulted in an ongoing series of fantastical dioramas for virtual reality called The Shoebox Diorama. The series now consists of 'Blocked In', 'Der Grosse Gottlieb' and 'The Marchland'. His dioramas have a simple goal of inspiring a sense of wonder. Daniël is currently working on a full length diorama called Dear Pigeon Man.
