In this talk Thomas will be reflecting on experimenting, testing, and the obsessions that feed his creative process. Discussing the themes behind his work Thomas looks to understand the accelerated accessibility of art, and the need to adapt as a digital creative whilst using an active research practice to keep relearning. This is a journey that tries to make better sense of the space that exists between visuals and language.
