Conductor is highly interactive and allows the participant to take on the role of an invisible but omnipotent celestial force manipulating the orbits of the planets with a variety of gestures. As the planets align, the feedback comes in the form of a dynamic soundtrack which grows ever more complex as the player’s gestures become more pronounced.
The use of sound in both Conductor which is inherent to the very structure of the artworks, has become a central compositional tool in the artist’s practice alongside the use of touch, movement and sight. Ultimately Harris seeks to create a totally immersive sensory experience for the viewers that engages the both physically and emotionally.

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
