Trebuchet Magazine: "Skeuomorphic Resonance - Dominic Harris: Life as Art as Interaction"
Trebuchet Magazine has dedicated Issue 8 of their magazine to the theme of Contemporary Surrealism. Within the print magazine, some 14 pages are dedicated to an in-depth investigation and critique of Dominic Harris's art practice.
Morphic resonance is a process whereby self-organising systems inherit a memory from previous similar systems. In its most general formulation, morphic resonance means that the so-called laws of nature are more like habits… each individual inherits a collective memory from past members of the species, and also contributes to the collective memory, affecting other members of the species in the future.’ – Rupert Sheldrake
Glistening butterflies, iridescent and perfect, air their wings and react to invisible forces, in natural scenes combed and cultured, progressing to the graceful arch of time. Digital artist Dominic Harris creates beautiful work that captures the viewer’s attention with precise detail and vibrant colour, but it is only as we move closer that they come to life. Clouds of butterflies surge across the gallery, celestial bodies wheel across desert landscapes, as shadows spear across dunes and life reacts to the light.
