Few digital media artist’s can capture as diverse subjects as exploratory electronic music and serpentine ballet dancers in visual form as succinctly as Brendan Harwood. Be it constructing hallucinogenic and reactive geometric shapes, turning the human form into inkblots or curiously revolving cats Brendan uses projection mapping like a paintbrush – capturing unconsidered spaces and transforming an unused wall or forgotten corner into as much as a focal point as a performer.
Since graduating with a Masters in Creative Media at RMIT, Brendan’s affinity with unique and unusual visuals has seen him work alongside Shadow Electric Cinema, Gertrude Street Projection Festival and The Australian Ballet, exhibit at Sydney’s Vivid Festival as well as developing his own show ‘Lightmares’ – the semi-regular showcase that explores the relationship between electronic musicians and digital artists. No matter the audience, be it dance floor or recital theatre, Brendan pushes the boundaries of visual performance with dream-like, kaleidoscopic and undeniably beautiful imagery.
