About Isobel Knowles

"I love working collaboratively with people to create stories and immersive experiences. I use playful visual metaphors to add multiple layers of understanding and expression in digital stories. I find it particularly exciting to combine new and old technologies together in installation, augmented and virtual reality projects. I have experience working from script development all the way through to finished production as well as finding unique ways to use existing material to create something new."
