Thought Collider are Object Therapy design repairers.
They are an experimental, critical art and design research practice based in Amsterdam – the work of Mike Thompson (UK) and Susana Cámara Leret (ES).
Their work focuses on the exploration of the meanings and values that can be derived from alternative ways of experiencing built and mediated environments, motivated by emerging technologies.
To this end, they conduct design experiments and process driven artworks spanning various media, generating experiential knowledge from the anecdotal or absurd: lived experiences that confront the norm by countering the thing-like nature of organisms, objects and places.
Aside from self-initiated collaborative projects they develop consultancy work for industry and academia to activate novel insights and innovation. Regular collaborators and/or clients include: The Netherlands Metabolomics Centre, Leiden University, The Sino Dutch Centre for Preventive and Personalised Medicine, The Waag Society, Transnatural Art & Design Label, Wageningen University Research Centre, International Flavours and Fragrances, Unilever, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and MU Gallery Eindhoven.
