Philip Thompson

Phil Thompson (b. 1988) is concerned with the way in which digital technologies have changed the way we perceive and produce contemporary art works. Working across disciplines including websites, video, sculpture and painting, Thompson explores the limitations of digital reproductions, as well as questioning the ethics present within these systems. He brings to the exhibition Landscapes of the Future a work experienced through a mobile device, using footage filmed in Abogbloshie, the worlds largest digital waste dump, in Accra, Ghana.
