Bram Thomas Arnold
Bram Thomas Arnold is an artist who started with walking and kept going, into performance; installation; drawing; academia; broadcasting and writing. His trans-disciplinary practice has seen him build a piece of road in a forest, learn to translate Lithuanian, carry 60 English novels to New York, and set out to walk from his home in London to the place of his birth in Switzerland. His ecological practice has been exhibited broadly in the UK as well as abroad in exhibitions from New York to St. Petersburg. His practice based PhD entitled Walking Home was published by the University of the Arts London in 2016. Elements of this work have been published in Digital Creativity Journal (Vol 26: 1), Ways To Wander (Triarchy Press) and his text/drawing series How To Walk (2009-2015) won the Plymouth Contemporary Open 2015. In 2017 he produced a six part radio show for Resonance FM in London called Trail Mix[ED] and a social sculpture project entitled The Park Bench Reader was commissioned by Plymouth Art Weekender. This Plymouth commission led to the development of Bibliotherapy for the Anthropocene, a project which has now been presented at Plymouth Athenaeum, Back Lane West (Redruth), the Environment and Sustainability Institute at Exeter University, the Eden Project and was due to be performed at OD Arts Festival in Somerset (postponed due to Covid 19). Bram is currently Creative Fellow at the Environment & Sustainability Institute and Associate Lecturer in Fine Art at Falmouth University as well as continuing to be an artist, a pedestrian and a writer.
