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

The Lily or Lilium is a sought after flower of beauty and strength. Valued for their large, very showy and fragrant qualities the six petals begin as a humble bulb and open into a trumpet shaped flower, signifying rebirth and purity. Native across the world they hold importance in dozens of cultures.

Interaction

The tranquil scene of several lilies is composed within the artwork frame. In response to the movement of the viewer around the piece, the flower buds will at times bloom or retract. A variety of small insects and larger butterflies accompany the interactive composition

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
