The October Series began in 2010 as a collection of small light-based works created by Dominic for his wife in commemoration of their wedding day. The artwork draws on video recordings and moments of personal significance recalled from the event, together with the distinctive qualities and hues of autumnal light. The October Series has since continued to evolve into other formats.
Opaline spheres of light are encased in a layered mirror and glass structure, causing reflections to bounce back and forth. A volume of colour and movement is created through a flat surface, giving the artwork seemingly infinite depth.
About Dominic Harris
Since establishing Cinimod, his 15-person, London-based studio in 2007, designer Dominic Harris has gained international attention for his technology-enabled works of interactive art. Trained as an architect, Harris has devoted recent years to integrating electronics into more traditional product design. His team includes programmers and workshop technicians who help him with (often quite complicated) fabrication. Harris has designed bespoke lighting for hotels, bars, restaurants, and retail spaces, as well as fine art installations. One of his most ambitious pieces invited participants to wildly gesture or even just attempt to change their own heart rate, which would in turn light up the London Eye.
British, b. 1976, based in London, United Kingdom
