I am Michaël.

I've been a webdesigner.
I've been a net.artist.
I've been a game author.
Now I create in virtual reality
for the glory of the almighty God.

Please read my bio

Born in 1968 in Belgium, trained a graphic designer, Michael Samyn started creating digital art when the world wide web appeared on the internet. In 1999 he formed the net.art duo Entropy8Zuper! with Auriea Harvey. A few years later the couple turned to videogames as Tale of Tales with art game classics as The Graveyard and The Path. Starting in 2015, Michael has focused on interactive virtual reality scenes such as Cricoterie, Compassie and The Viriditas Chapel of Perpetual Adoration. He currently lives and works in Rome, Italy.
