ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Dominic Hawgood (1980, UK) is a cross-disciplinary artist whose practice has emerged out of photography’s expanded field, and progressed towards site-specific installation. He investigates psychological space through photography, light, CG, animation and design; reflecting on the experience of the real world within the virtual. His work spans both still and moving image, with an increasing use of digital media informed through an interest in visual computing, perception, and the role of the lens within VFX.
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2014, Dominic has had solo exhibitions at TJ Boulting, London (UK); Oonagh Young Gallery, Dublin (IR); and the Brighton Digital Festival X British Science Festival, Brighton (UK). He has also won the British Journal of Photography International Award and been selected as a Foam Talent in 2015. He lives and works in London (UK).
His solo show Casting Out the Self is on display at Foam until 13 October 2019. In this exhibition Hawgood visualises the effect of the drug dimethyltryptamine (DMT), which he personally experienced as a transfer into the digital realm. His work creates a hallucinatory effect: photographs seem to move, flat surfaces reveal hidden depths, and the perception of space turns out to be an illusion. Hawgood researches and appropriates elements of computational photography into his work, leading into intriguing site-specific installations and sculptural elements that refer to both spiritual ceremonies and the digital rituals of computer graphics. Through lighting design, Hawgood creates a unique atmosphere that transforms the exhibition space into a twilight zone between physical and digital reality. Hawgood not only pushes the boundaries of the medium of photography but also expresses a highly innovative approach to exhibition design.
