Harry Sanderson, 2016
Harry Sanderson is a new media artist whose practice ranges from sound performances to interactive software sculptures, video work and online commissions. His current focus is on the emergent field of caustic imaging technology.
Out of an interest in the raw energy and labour consumed in the production of digital images, I wanted to pursue ways of displaying them that foregrounded their materiality instead of continuing to rely on digital projections and monitors. In order to do this I began working on an emergent field called caustic imaging technology, which uses algorithms and cloud computing to determine the contours necessary to produce a digital image from refracted light. The process of producing these works has been technically and intellectually intensive, and the Blitz residency would provide an excellent opportunity to consolidate and reflect upon my work and think about ways of moving forward.
