Dominic Harris at Annabel's

In support of Annabel鈥檚 for the Amazon
/
Dominic Harris has created a bespoke digital art installation 'UNSEEN' in collaboration with renowned private members' club Annabel’s in support of their month-long charity initiative, Annabel's for the Amazon. The initiative supports The Caring Family Foundation’s goal to plant one million trees in the Amazon rainforest by March 2024, to demonstrate the importance of preserving nature in the fight against deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest.

'UNSEEN' is an interactive portrait of undiscovered butterfly species — incredible specimens that have never been witnessed or documented by humans. As deforestation and environmental changes shift and destroy the ecological landscape that is home to these delicate creatures, it is speculated that many species disappear before they are ever discovered. In paying homage to those “unseen” butterflies, Harris’ focus is on the captivating beauty of what might have been. Harris hopes, with his typical enduring optimism, that some of his fabricated butterflies may well be out there awaiting discovery in jungles and rainforests such as the Amazon.

The installation will allow guests to discover unknown and AI-created butterflies, reactive to touch, the kaleidoscope of butterflies will disperse into natural flight, following the connection of the user's hand. 

Sensitive to touch, the work has been curated to highlight the undiscovered, shining a light on the importance of protecting the Amazon from deforestation and the beauty that is being lost amidst this mass destruction. It encourages visitors to look closely and take note of the importance of every lifeform affected by our actions.

Using complex algorithms trained on his own hand-painted collection of butterflies, Harris realises his digital lepidopterist dream of bringing new butterfly species to life. The result is an intriguing evolution in his work, manifested by a rabble of new digital butterfly specimens that are each infinitely unique, impossibly beautiful, yet entirely plausible.
