Whitewall : The Best of Salon Art and Design 2023
London-based fine arts purveyor Halcyon Gallery made its splashy Salon debut with an exhibition from interactive digital artist, Dominic Harris. After a hugely successful debut at Halcyon’s Mayfair gallery earlier this year, Feeding Consciousness is a series of works combining AI, code, machine learning, 3D sensors and other digital art technology. At its center, a ten-foot tower, inspired by the Biblical story of the Tower of Babel, displays, in real-time, the highest trending topics on Google’s UK search engine. Composed of 180 LCD screens, the piece is intended to represent the “country’s collective consciousness.”
