Susana Cámara Leret and Mike Thompson's art, design and research practice explores metabolic processes, bodies and spaces. They experiment with the meanings and values that can be derived from alternative ways of experiencing built and mediated environments.
As Thought Collider they are motivated by emergent nature cultures. Their artworks span various media, generating experiential insights that confront the norm. This exhibition, in the new Alt-w LAB for creative technology, is the first solo presentation of their work in the UK.
