In Conductor, the viewer looks out across a mesmeric tapestry of planets and stars on a large 4K high-resolution screen. The viewer becomes the omnipotent architect of the universe as he or she orchestrates the planets using theatrical hand gestures. Concurrently, a soundtrack responds to the movement of the user’s hands, creating a dramatic and encompassing interaction for the viewer.
The use of sound in both Conductor and Ice Angel, which is inherent to the very structure of the artworks, has become a central compositional tool in the artist’s practice alongside the use of touch, movement and sight. Ultimately Harris seeks to create a totally immersive sensory experience for the viewers that engage the both physically and emotionally.
