Harry Burden

Body Double Double Body (2015)

This work explores the capacity for the transition of objects from the virtual world to the physical world. These inexpensive vases, purchased from Ebay, were all listed as ‘broken, damaged or chipped’. The original owners still felt they retained some value even though these objects were visibly cracked and damaged. Once they were acquired by the artist, Burden digitally scanned the objects, 3-D printing in z-corp powder copies or doubles of the ‘original’ which were then refined and sprayed in a ‘digital’ chromatic paint. Burden is interested in the transitional aspects of a 3-D physical experience of the world to a virtual 2-D online experience and presents works that play with the contradictions involved. He often uses objects and their digital reproductions found on the internet to create works that play with this duality of experience and its effect on culture, perception and identity.

Harry Burden was born in Melbourne and now lives and works in London. He graduated with an MFA from Central Saint Martins in 2008.
