Theron’s first memories are of machines. Being fascinated by them, wanting to take them apart, taking them apart (much to the dismay of their owners), eventually learning to put them back together, and building new ones.
In 2008 after studying Industrial Design in Cape Town, he co-founded a robotics school, Rosum Robotics with the goal of complimenting and seeding an inventive practice of learning.
In the intervening years Theron convinced the HKU University of the Arts, Utrecht and the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste Städelschule, Frankfurt respectively to award a Masters in Interaction Deign and a Masters in Architecture respectively.
He now works between Meso Digital Interiors Frankfurt and The Leibniz Universität Hannover as a researcher in Digital methods in Architecture.
