Thought Collider is an art, design and research practice based in Amsterdam and London, exploring metabolic processes, bodies and spaces.
It comprises the work of Mike Thompson (UK) and Susana Cámara Leret (ES), experimenting with the meanings and values that can be derived from alternative ways of experiencing built and mediated environments, motivated by emergent nature cultures.
To this end, we conduct experiments and processual artworks spanning various media, generating experiential insights from the anecdotal or absurd: lived experiences that confront the norm by encountering the thing-like nature of organisms, objects and places.
Thought Collider are currently residents at Somerset House Studios in London. Additionally, Mike and Susana are co-founding members of the Amsterdam-based WNDRLUST collective, as well as The Data & Ethics Working Group, a collaborative research team using art to explore public interaction with data access, exchange and retrieval systems, and the ethical implications of data ownership.
Regular collaborators include: The Netherlands Metabolomics Centre, Leiden University, The Sino Dutch Centre for Preventive and Personalised Medicine, Waag Society, Transnatural Art & Design Label, Wageningen University Research Centre, International Flavours & Fragrances, Unilever, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, MU Gallery Eindhoven, Open Set and STRP.
