Dominic Harris, ‘Atlantic Puffin | Ruffled (medium)’, 2014, Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design

Fratercula arctica

#Clown of the Sea

This species is well adapted for life at sea with their short wings designed to swim underwater with a flying technique. When flying, it is less easy, and the Puffin has to flap its wings rapidly to take off and normally fly close to the surface of the water. When they land these birds are even clumsier, crashing or bellyflopping into waves.

About Dominic Harris

Since establishing Cinimod Studio, a multi-disciplinary, London-based practice in 2007, artist and designer Dominic Harris has gained international attention for his digitally-driven works of interactive art. Harris has devoted recent years to seamlessly blending natural phenomena with complex code through integrated electronics and innovative fabrication techniques. Inspired by the architectural interventions of James Turrell and Dan Flavin, Dominic offers viewers a sublime experience of their surrounding environment in his surreal installations that wryly illuminate the effect of digital culture on human perception in the information age. One of the artist’s most ambitious pieces invited participants to wildly gesture or attempt to change their own heart rate, which would in turn light up the London Eye.

British, b. 1976, based in London, United Kingdom
