Jennet Thomas (born 1963) is an artist who makes films, performances and installations. Her work began as spoken word and projections for a live audience, it now combines a variety of filmic languages, ranging from soap opera to experimental and underground filmmaking, from sci-fi to musicals. Her work tackles very human content and is often bleakly comic. Thomas' work emerged from the anarchistic, experimental culture of London's underground film and live art club scene in the 1990's, where she was a co-founder of the Exploding Cinema Collective. Her numerous film works have screened extensively in the international Film Festival arena (Rotterdam, Oberhausen, New York Underground Film Festival) with retrospectives at The Pleasure Dome, Toronto, Anthology Film Archives, New York and Rencontres Video Art Plastique in France. She is a Senior Lecturer on BA Fine Art: Print and Time Based Media at the University of the Arts London, Wimbledon College.
