Laserist Tom Harman: Inspired by Dali

Visual Installation

Visual Artist and Laserist Tom Harman viewed a unique line drawing used by Dali in the creation of his artwork, while visiting the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. This piece of art will be recreated for the first time, using four high intensity multi-colored laser projectors supplied by Mr. Harman’s company LaserNet. The intricate alignment of the laser beams will be featured in various colors. In addition to the Dali pattern, Harman will also create a variety of patterns of his own design. ‘Inspired by Dali’ will have its world premiere at Aurora 2015.
