James Thompson

MA work

My work deals with our perception of space and its interpretation. My approach draws inspiration from Cubism and the potential duality of space and time, composed of parallel worlds and higher dimensions that exist alongside our own.


Documentation is a key feature of my work, used as a working methodology and an outcome itself – through the creation of tools and systems used to record, re-map and translate a particular space into something else.
