Dominic Harris (London, 1976) is an artist who uses technology to construct highly personal interpretations of the natural phenomena which surround us.

His reverence for nature, coupled with his fascination for code, offers a surreal and whimsical take on reality, which ultimately challenges our own perceptions of the world about us. His responses, aesthetic yet playful, conceal a carefully-observed commentary on the digitisation of our daily experiences, which plays both upon our emotions, and our relationship with the technology-fuelled 21st century Pop Culture.

As these technologies, unstoppable and fascinating, invade our lives, and intrude upon us in ever more intimate ways, Dominic Harris captures the sometimes-menacing march of the information age turning it to our advantage in an insightful and seamless blending of nature with code.

Dominic Harris is part of a small, and important, coterie of artists who are pushing the envelope of feasibility and redefining what is acceptable within the art world.

Dominic graduated from Cranbrook Kingswood School in Michigan, and returned to England to read Architecture at the Bartlett School, University College, London. He graduated with top distinctions, qualifying as an architect in 2003, and going on to work for the avant-garde architectural practice Future Systems. In 2007 Dominic founded his own studio in Notting Hill, London, where he and his team design, engineer, code and fabricate his artworks and installations.
