Four States is an interactive artwork conceived as a representation of our dynamic relationship with the elemental states of water. Using a mixture of high-end particle physics processing and monochrome time-lapse video the artwork explores the sensory experience of disturbing a natural state of balance.

The artwork is inspired by Man Ray photograms and scientific simulations of biogeochemical cycles and speculates on the supervenience of systems on different scales. As a triptych, three phase states of water are depicted in pinpoint quality, and optical behaviours coalescing with motions pertaining to state.

The artwork recalls Harris’ fascination with early exploration into light-based medias and their growth as tools for scientific imaging, and the playful exploration of its potentials through artistic medias in contemporary art. The relationship between the understanding of complex phenomena and the desire to comprehend their traits often rely on representational medias to embody their meaning, thereby creating a separate sensorial experience.

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
