Thomas Ballouhey French, b. 1990

Overview

Thomas Balhouey (b.1990) is a French objectdesigner artist who lives and works in Paris, France. 

After receiving a bachelor in Product Design at the ESAD of Reims, he graduated from the Contextual Design Master Course of the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016. 

His work proces could be summed up by a quest for alternative and experimental means of productions, suited for the articulation of fictional objects. His practice revolves around altering different techniques and materials, implementing them with various scenarios. 

The result is displayed in imaginary objects from another place, showing a landscape of ornate sculptures that could have been, imagining unknown artifacts if we had decided to take an unexpected turn at one point or another in time. A landscape strangely similar to ours, or at least strangely similar to our customs.
