Splice travelling to Kunsthal Rotterdam
Vitra Design Museum’s travelling exhibition Making Africa, curated by Amelie Klein with Okwui Enwezor as consulting curator, will be arriving at the Kunsthal Rotterdam on October 1st.
Africa has joined the digital world with access to internet and more than 650 million mobile phones – more than in Europe or the United States. The exhibition ‘Making Africa’ presents the work of more than 120 artists and designers to show how design reacts to the economic and political changes in the continent. African designers and artists from different disciplines break with the conventional definitions of design, art, photography, architecture and film, such as the sculptural eyewear of Kenyan artist Cyrus Kabiru, the furniture designs of Cheick Diallo from Mali, or the photography of Mozambiquan Mario Macliau and Nigerian J.D. Okhai Ojeikere. The exhibition, which has been produced in collaboration with the Vitra Design Museum, is based on prolonged research and many interviews with African creative personalities. The result is surprising. Besides relatively well-known representatives of the older generation such as the photographers Keita and Sidibé, the exhibition presents an entirely new generation of artists who are engaged in designing the Africa of now and of the future. They pay little heed to the boundaries between disciplines. By combining historical and contemporary work, Making Africa shows that today’s young generation is full of energy and is creating space for new élan.
The exhibition dates are from Oct 1, 2016 till Jan 15, 2017.

DOMINIC HARRIS (b. 1976)
Dominic Harris is an interactive artist whose chosen palette of materials is lighting, interaction design, and electronics. Dominic’s artworks exhibit an on-going fascination between the marriage of evocative and beautiful concepts with the inventive adaptation of cutting-edge technologies. His training as an architect explains the obsessive attention to detailing and fabrication of his works. Dominic designs and fabricates his artworks at Cinimod Studio, a multi-disciplinary practice he founded in 2007. This studio is comprised of 25 people with diverse backgrounds including architecture, product design, electronics, programming, graphic design, and workshop skills. Dominic uses the resources of Cinimod Studio for the on-going development, prototyping and production of his artworks. Dominic also oversees the studio’s international projects where his fascinations are translated into larger scale projects that span residential, retail, and public art projects.

Global Art Fair returns to Olympia for Art16 – 10 highlights
This Dutch gallery will exhibit across the weekend, with interactive installations from British artist Dominic Harris. Harris is best known for his work with light and video, and for the immersive stylings of his work. The display at Art16 will be no different: Conductor (2015) is a representation of the universe, planets and stars, on a 4K-screen, which responds to movement – move your hand and the planets move too, and the accompanying soundtrack shifts as well. If this is playing God, it’s the most beautiful way to do it.
