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

The wisteria is a flowering plant that derives from the pea family. It has hanging clusters of fragrant flowers that usually come in shades of lilac and pale blue. Wisteria vines can be seen climbing and twining their stems around any available support and can climb as high as 20 metres! The flowers are indigenous to eatern Asia and North America.

Interaction

The wisteria is slightly different to the other flowers in the Bloomed series mainly because it hangs down rather then sits upright. As the scene progresses the wisteria flowers are pollinated by butterflies and bubble bees. A humming bird also comes in and lands on the flower.

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
