The Shimmer artworks play on Dominic’s skill at manipulating colours and light, but in a departure from many of his pieces Shimmer is created without any sensors or electronics; instead it is simply the viewing angle of the observer that controls the spectacular magical appearance of the piece.
Dominic has selected opposing warm and cool colour dichroic glass for the piece, creating an infinitely variable shifting colour palette where directly viewed and reflected light create the alluring shimmering aesthetic of the piece.

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
