Referencing some of the techniques Harris employed in his smaller scale artworks, Baby Shimmer is a physical amplification of Harris’ fascination with the role of the viewer and their interaction with colour, light and movement.
The colour shifting volumes of light respond to the movement of the viewer. In an era in which our lives are becoming increasingly digitised, the ultra-low resolution pixellation of shifting colour presented within the installation harks back to simpler times of less resolution and lower fidelity.
Harris describes this phenomenon as “low fidelity, high granularity”, but realises it with his characteristic precision of manufacture, coupled with his obsession with viewer engagement.
