Thomas Grogan

Resident artist

Country: United Kingdom

Thomas Grogan (b.1991, UK) is a Franco-British artist and researcher based in London. With a background in Design, he has developed an artistic practise that is driven by ethnographic research. His work investigates current and future social issues around emerging technologies through various physical and digital artistic outputs like sculpture, installation, animation and virtual platform. The visual language in Thomas’s work is strongly influenced by corporate branding, manufacturing and product hacking. From three dimensional pieces to digital experimentations, he often blurs the boundaries between physical and virtual realms by distorting the ways in which they usually cohabit.
