Dev Harlan

Dev Harlan’s work operates at a point of increasing fluidity between physical and digital practices. Installations and sculptures are often constructed from geometric primitives, tessellated surfaces or appropriated objects. Surfaces and spaces are activated with the use of digital projections, relying on a structured relationship between light and surface over time. All are in superposition and reinforcement of each other, proposing a temporal and phenomenological mode of viewing.

Dev Harlan (b 1978, Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.) is a contemporary artist based in New York.
