Platform Talks: John Harris
For more than 40 years John Harris has been creating images for science fiction, the space industry, including NASA, and his own personal speculations on what possible worlds might be created in the decades to come.
“What we place our attention upon, grows in reality.”
Imagining an artist travelling through space and time, he envisages a future full of mystery and wonder and through a series of paintings attempts to bring a sense of vastness into the present. This sense of the vast, he believes, provides us with a proper perspective from which to view our ambitions as a species.
