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, 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
