Brendan Harwood (b. 1989) is a Melbourne-based digital media artist who’s practice is primarily engaged with exploring the process of digitalising the surface of physical objects.
Having moved to Melbourne in 2007, he completed his Bachelor of Arts (Animation and Interactive Media) degree in 2010, then Masters of Creative Media (Animation and Interactive Media) in 2013, both at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
Throughout his years completing his Masters, his practice moved away from working within traditional forms and display of moving image media, and towards virtualising and working within the parameters of physical objects, the relationship between the object and image, and the relationship between the object and viewer. These ideas have been made possible with use of digital projectors, video mapping software and interactive set ups.
Recently, he has been exhibited as a part of Vivid festival in Sydney and also producing visual work for The Australian Ballet.
