Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London; lives in London) is a multimedia artist who works with audio-visual material, electronic equipment, amplifiers, and found objects to create immersive environments and kinetic sculptures. His work amplifies phenomena, such as electricity, that are often imperceptible and seeks to create or distort the relationship been optical and acoustic phenomena, giving unexpected visual and sensorial analogs to what we hear. He uses a particular visual and material vocabulary to modify architecture, including colored-neon, LEDs, and sculptural acoustic foam, creating installations that offer a precise, highly mediated experience of sound and light. The result is a unique and often uncanny phenomenological experience for his viewers.
Mirza has been commissioned by PAMM to create a new work for its double-height gallery. For this project, the artist will create a technical system using speakers and LEDs that will translate electrical currents into a choreographed display of light and sound, transforming our experience of the space.
