Christopher Thomas Allen

Christopher Thomas Allen is a pioneering media artist and filmmaker from London. He is the remaining founder and director of the multi-media group The Light Surgeons, a company he established after studying Media Design at Portsmouth University in 1994. His work crosses a diverse range of different media; from his back ground in graphic design and photography he has gone on to direct and produce many award winning short films and several major installation projects in national museums. 

His work as a performing artist has grown from the many different experimental audio visual collaborations initiated through his company The Light Surgeons. These ground-breaking multimedia performances have toured to many festivals and have helped to define the practice of live cinema internationally.
