Dan Harvey

Sculpture, photography, ecology and biology are disciplines that intersect in Heather Ackroyd’s & Dan Harvey’s time-based work, often reflecting scientific and environmental concerns and revealing an intrinsic bias towards process and event. For over 26 years their work has been exhibited in contemporary art galleries, museums and public spaces worldwide. Juxtaposing nature and structure, they are acclaimed for time-based interventions in sites of architectural interest that often reflect urban political ecologies by highlighting temporal processes of growth and decay, and they have received many awards for their unique photographic work utilizing the pigment chlorophyll in making complex photographs, including the Royal Academy of Arts Rose Award for Photography 2014, Wu Guanzhong Prize 2012 for Art and Innovation, L’Oreal Art and Science of Colour Grand Prize, Wellcome Trust Sci-Art Award, and the National Endowment of Science Technology and Art Pioneer Award.
