Thickear (Geoff Howse, Jack James, Kevin Logan, Tadeo Sendon) are an artists’ collective exploring contemporary themes through a focus on context specific work. Originally working mainly with sound, their practise now features performance work, installation and meditated public encounters. Much of thickear’s recent work has concerned the ethics of data collection and exchange, including the epic dystopian performance / installation Ministry of Measurement, a major feature of the Barbican Centre’s ‘Hack the Barbican’ season in 2013. Formed in London at the beginning of 2012, thickear have presented work at a wide range of venues and events including the Arbeit Gallery, Music Hackspace, Music Tech Fest, the Barbican and ICT 2013.
