‘Digital Shimmer’ is a three dimensional lighting sculpture in which colour, form and perception are manipulated to achieve a mesmerising colour display. It is the ‘digital’ evolution to Harris’s earlier “Shimmer” artwork which continues the same fascination with colour studies and movements but this time through electronic control.
A continuously evolving palate of colours move around and inside the mathematically designed circular geometries. Highly controlled hidden lighting synthesises an endless variation of colours creating new studies and combinations that create shifts in perception for the viewer. At times the physical form appears to warp and twist, and the central sphere will appear to vanish before remerging out of a coloured shadow.

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
