Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design presents Baby Shimmer installation by Dominic Harris
Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design presents the experimental Baby Shimmer installation by Dominic Harris. Referencing some of the techniques Harris employed in his earlier, smaller-scale works, this immersive presentation is a physical amplification of his fascination with the role of the audience and their interaction with color, light, and movement.
By stepping into the installation, one becomes surrounded by an infinite reach of the crisp Baby Shimmer objects. The color-shifting volumes of light respond to the movement of each viewer. In an era in which our lives are becoming increasingly digitized, the ultra-lowresolution pixilation of shifting color presented here harks back to simpler times of less resolution and lower fidelity. Harris describes this phenomenon as “low fidelity, high granularity,” but realizes it with his characteristic precision of manufacture coupled with his obsession with viewer engagement.
Priveekollektie represents internationally recognized artists and designers and provides young and upcoming talents with a platform for showing their exceptional collectible design and art pieces. Key in the collection is the combination of contemporary art and collectible design and the crossing of the fine line between both disciplines.
