Using technology to construct highly personal interpretations of natural phenomena, contemporary British artist Dominic Harris's reverence of nature coupled with his fascination for code offers a surreal and whimsical take on reality.

As these technologies, unstoppable and fascinating, have ignited a new wave of interactivity in ever more intimate ways, Harris captures the sometimes menacing march of the information age, turning it to our advantage in an insightful and seamless blending of nature with code. He is part of a small yet important coterie of artists who are pushing the envelope of feasibility and redefining what is acceptable within the art world.

‘His incorporation of physical optical effects is a reminder of our everyday existence, while the way the works react to our movements feels like a type of magic.

Sunny Cheung, Assistant Curator of the Liverpool Biennial for Contemporary Art
