Biography

FOS (born Thomas Poulsen) creates a variety of works, from installations to works on paper, that coalesce around his interest in examining how interactions and perceptions are shaped by specific contexts. His works are interventions that exemplify the artist’s idea of “social design”, an artistic framework in which social interaction and communal public experiences are his materials. For example, FOS’s Osloo (2011), an immersive public sculpture outfitted with a bar, stage, and radio station, is activated and fully realized through its use by visitors.
