Thomas Swinkels' practice moves between sculpture, photography, video, and installation and is informed by his time living in a squat.

Thomas considers his work parasitic: it feeds off found objects, low-fi technologies, and stories from his immediate surroundings. This emphasis on locality is both a condition for and an ambition of his work.
