Brendan Harwood is a Melbourne-based digital media artist. His 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, 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.
In 2014 Brendan worked on productions for The Australian Ballet and Mercedes Benz, had work exhibited in Vivid 2014 and the Gertrude Street Projection Festival 2014, while working alongside the music collectives The Operatives as their VJ for a number of international DJs and producers
