Thomas Coulson works from a research and performance background to produce documentations, writings and short films depicting inner torment, Coulson’s work focuses on the issues of mental health and how mental health effects the permittivity of one's day, exploring the physical and mental exertion of people in their day to day lives. The work focuses heavily on dialogue and human interaction asking the question. How do people situate themselves in community as well as isolate from it?
Drawing upon their Catholic upbringing and the comparative shift in importance from the priest to the therapist. Playing upon a childish naivety to questioning community guidelines and growing up with a false sense of security, there is a clear search for where people find reasoning for their actions and ultimately where they find salvation.
