Jol Thomson is Canadian born, European based artist, author, and sound designer. Both his written and moving-image work engage posthumanism, feminist science studies, and general ecology, or the environmental implications of pervasive technical/sensing devices. In the fields of neutrino and dark matter physics he collaborates with renowned physics institutes around the world. These ‘laboratory-landscapes’ are the focus of his practice led PhD at the University of Westminster. In 2017 Jol was a fellow of Schloss Solitude and resident artist at the Bosch Gmbh Campus for Research and Advanced Engineering.

Jol graduated with an Honors BA in Philosophy, Art History, and Visual Studies from the University of Toronto [2009] and later studied under Prof. Simon Starling at the Städelschule in Frankfurt [2013]. Between 2014-16 he developed and taught an experimental creative-research program for architecture students at the University of Braunschweig with then interim director Tomás Saraceno.  In 2016 Jol won the MERU Art*Science Award for his film G24|0vßß, which is currently installed in the Blind Faith: Between the Cognitive and the Visceral in Contemporary Art group exhibition at Haus der Kunst, Munich.
