Popular for their bright colours and prominent crest, the Turaco gets its vibrancy from just two pigments both of which contain copper which is unique to the bird. The call of the bird sounds a little like a jungle monkey and has given it the nickname ‘the Go-Away Bird’ as it sounds very similar to ‘g’way’.

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
