Digital Shimmer

Digital Shimmer’ is a three dimensional lighting sculpture in which colour, form and perception are manipulated to achieve a mesmerising colour display. It is the ‘digital’ evolution to Harris’s earlier “Shimmer” which continues the same fascination with colour studies and movements but this time through electronic control.


A continuously evolving palate of colours move around and inside the mathematically designed circular geometries. Highly controlled hidden lighting synthesises an endless variation of colours creating new studies and combinations that create shifts in perception for the viewer. At times the physical form appears to warp and twist, and the central sphere will appear to vanish before remerging out of a coloured shadow.
