Metamorphosis: Unseen

The nature of Dominic Harris’ medium allows him to transform wild fantasies into digital realities. In the case of Metamorphosis: Unseen, the artwork contains a vast array of colourful digital butterflies that remain constantly in a state of flux. Harnessing artificial intelligence, these creatures have a life of their own within the digital canvas.

Deriving from Harris’ imagination, these butterflies are not known species that have been discovered in nature. Yet, it is plausible that butterflies which match Harris’ could one day be found. Through this work, Harris highlights that the destruction of wildlife habitats threatens so much natural beauty that we have not even had the chance to discover. Through the creation of something beautiful, Harris highlights the dangers of man’s intervention, in these delicate ecosystems, to harrowing effect.

'Sometimes it is the smallest of movements that creates the greatest of impacts. I invite the viewer to collaborate in the development of the depicted scenes, and to unveil the true meaning within the artwork.'
