Florian Thalhofer is a media-artist and documentary-maker and the founder of the Korsakow Institut. He is the inventor of the Korsakow-System and the chief-architect of the Korsakow-software. Thalhofer started in 1997 to tell stories via computer. That led him to the development of the Korsakow software and a principle for a new way of structuring narrations. These narrations are rule-based, non-linear and (usually) interactive. Thalhofer made numerous Korsakow-films and one linear film: GELD.GR (2013), Planet Galata (2010), Vergessene Fahnen (2007) and others. He taught at the University of the Arts, Berlin at DFFB and at Deutsches Literatur Institut, Leipzig and gave talks and lectures on every continent except Australia.
