The Human Sample Kit Experiment--Tom Thum at YouTube Brandcast 2016For myself experimentation is a huge part of my creative process and I'm always trying to think of ways I can diversify my performances to keep me on my toes. I also hate performing by myself, it makes my willy shrivel.

(what a conceited wanker.) Anyways this was the first public performance of the idea and a little sight of the tip of the iceberg in terms of the possibilities of what can be achieved using this concept and I really look forward to pushing it further.
