T.S. IDIOT (Tom Stockley) is a lo-fi performer, writer, designer, organiser and semi-professional moron based in Bristol.

In 2016 he appeared as a rock in an international theatre production and burnt his BA degree. In 2017 he appeared in a BBC3 Documentary. In 2018 he was selected for the UK Young Artists Residency Programme. Right now he lives in Bristol with some humans and reptiles, working on various projects with Uncollective.
His major influences include Genesis P-Orridge, Lady Gaga, Marcel Duchamp, Jeremy Deller, Bas Jan Ader, Chris Burden, Angus Fairhurst, William Pope.
