JON Wirthner

Interactive Media Creation



Jon Wirthner is a media artist and interaction designer based in Zurich. He is engaged in film making and creating interactions with all kinds of people and media.


My passion is ideas on the edge of known use and sense.



Ideate, Design & Implement
…meaningful interaction and experience. 


Create, Prototype & Test
…new ideas, in and around any kind of boxes.


Structure, Transform & Shape
…things that do not work or even exist yet.


Making & Telling Stories
…that get messages across – through words or any kind of media.


Digital Animation & Video
…in self contained production.


Video Workshops
…to convey basic skills and enthusiasm in video production 
to people on all stages of education.


Disruption & Innovation 
The core of my projects is often a sense of radical change, new perspectives and progression.


Prototypes & Prospects
I test Ideas from scratch on – keep it real and make sure no questions remain.


Bricolage & Tinkering
…having more ideas than resources this is the way to make it possible and find new inspiration.






I work in many different fields and more than often in-between them. Select from the categories below to filter projects.
