Thomas Hauser is a graduate of the École Supérieure d’Art et de Design Marseille-Méditerranée and completed post-graduate work at the California College of Arts in San Francisco. His work was recently exhibited at La Frontiera and the Un-Spaced gallery (Paris), the Centre d'art Image/Imatge (Orthez), and the Aperture Gallery (New York). As an architect of collective memory, he deconstructs the notion of the archive, subjecting his images to a process of degradation and abstraction. Although plastically connected to photography, conceptually, his work is connected to sculpture and cinema—of which he uses the techniques of montage and temporal fragmentation. The Wake of Dust was initially a publication project produced in collaboration with Fred Cave and the Werkplaats Typografie (Arnhem) in 2015.
