Dianne Harris takes a technological approach to exploring the unseen realms of existence. By merging seemingly divergent fields of perception, such as science, philosophy, mythology and psychology, her work aims to heighten the awareness of human potentiality and question the self-imposed limitations that serve to confine the very nature of our ideas, thoughts and being.
Using multi-dimensional media, sculpture and installation, Harris combines reality with non-reality. Beyond the specifics of time or place, her work simultaneously references the past, present and future to explore states of harmony, discordance, disappearance, re-emergence and the vibration of matter.
