Biography

Thomas is the Head of Art at Falmouth University. Thomas situates his artistic research across the field of art practice, medical humanities and the social sciences. His artwork explores methods of making manifest equivalent experiences of disorder through methods associated with cinematographic projection and performance, in the context of installation art. Thomas's art practice serves to strengthen the research, which currently exists in medical fields surrounding the concept of disorder and diagnosis. In doing so the artistic research aims to provide health professionals and the general public with accessible information about disorder and diagnosis that can be used to plan services, support research studies and public health campaigns to reduce stigma, increase self-efficacy and generate improvements in mental health.
