Surreal, alluring, unattainable; just a few ways
to describe the world’s deserts. Their charm and
complexity are one of the planet’s truly unique natural
creations. Harris has taken his characteristic play on
reality, depicting scenes that, at first, might appear to
be windows into the truly remarkable ecosystems,
wildlife and natural occurrences within the desert.
Through exploration of the artwork, the viewer will
become drawn into Harris’ romanticised surrealness,
interrogating what lies below the seemingly pictorial
study of these fascinating landscapes.

Interaction is central to this artwork, and with the touch
or movement of the viewer, the elements within each
landscape respond and interact — from the smallest of
creatures to the largest of weather systems.

Deserted is composed of four distinct scenes portraying
three very different deserts in North America: White
Sands New Mexico, Joshua Tree National Park, and
Monument Valley. In the fourth scene, Harris plays
upon the NASA lunar landing conspiracy theories,
presenting a landscape that could be either on earth or
on the moon.
