Dominic Harris, ‘Foxglove | Bloomed (large)’, 2016, Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design

Tall and stately, the foxglove can be appreciated for its vertical clusters of tubular shaped blooms. A favourite flower of the honey-bee, it’s eye-catching variations in colours include pink, red, purple, white and yellow. A common wild flower of Great Britain, it grows freely in woods and countryside lanes.

Interaction

The foxglove is a complex structure which oscillates and vibrates gently in the wind — and here the viewer’s interaction. Occasionally a mutated peloris flowers opens at the top of the stem, beautifully deforming the underlying structure under the added weight. As the viewer approaches the artwork, so too will a butterfly, landing on a flower to sample it’s nectar.

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
