Tius grew up with punch tape readers, large floppy disk drives and soldering irons. For more than four decades, he and his companies have been developing and operating highly available systems for a wide range of clients in the media industry.
In collaboration with various artists, he also develops creative customised technical solutions to enable new forms of expression.
In his own artistic work, Tius deals with various elementary philosophical and social questions, such as the nature of reality, aspects of perception, transience and human identity. In doing so, he often consciously uses the limited possibilities of historical systems as a form of expression.

The works for the exhibition "Teletext is Art" once again address fundamental questions of human existence. For this purpose, film quotes of artificial intelligences were placed in a new context.

How to Kunst im Teletext?
Workshop for digital artists by Max Haarich and Tius
(with Max Haarich and Betty Mü)
“7bit movements” is an artistic investigation into the boundaries of visual perception.
13 international artists created short 7bit GIF animations to challenge our perception of movement. What does it take to have the impression of a movement? How do we identify a moving object, its direction, its orientation, its speed?
The rough and glitchy 7bit teletext aesthetics serve as a boundary and facilitator at the same time: they sometimes cover and sometimes highlight certain details to create novel experiences of visual perception and delusion.
All artworks were created using custom based software build by Tius.

(with Wolfgang Heckl and Max Haarich)
The artwork is based on Eadweard Muybridge's iconic running horse image sequence, often considered one of the earliest films of all time. The sequence is further reduced to the display possibilities of teletext and becomes a vanitas motif in its endless repetition.
Dedicated to the amazing @horsenburger.
Contribution for the Valentine’s Day exhibition on Yle Text.
The medium is the massage. Fully on-chain teletext art stored on Arweave and broadcasted on SAT.1 Teletext. Included in the permanent collection of Museum Francisco Carolinum (AT) and Museum of Teletext Art (FI).
The art exhibition "TeleNFT" questions technological progress in the context of economic and environmental crises. How much time is left? Is technology the salvation? Is art the threat? Our 15 internationally renowned digital artists address these questions with innovative teletext artworks. With only 78x69 pixels, they present motifs ranging from hand-drawn animals to computer-generated patterns. These works immortalised on the blockchain document our zeitgeist, sometimes ironically resigned, sometimes uninhibitedly euphoric, but united in one conviction - now it's up to us.
