Biography

Professor Jane Harris established novel approaches to digital imaging design and creative computing disciplines through her doctoral study (1995-2000), informed by an established textile and material practice. Working with 3D CGI animation and real time tools, encompassing issues of craft and aesthetic, her pioneering imaging work achieves a hybrid of design, artefact and experience, broadly impacting museum, CGI film / game narratives, performance, e-commerce, and design.  Her practice has been internationally exhibited including at: the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A), London; the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; Tokyo Design Centre, Japan; Curtin Art Gallery, Perth Australia; the Institute of Contemporary Art, London.

Principal Investigator of one of nine Creative R&D Partnership awards (£5.5m), as part of an £80million UK wide Creative Industries Cluster Programme (2018-23), funded by the Industrial Strategy and delivered by the AHRC, Jane is currently leading R&D on real-time visualisation experience for dress contexts crossing retail and e-economy contexts.

Jane has also received Fellowships from the National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts (NESTA), the Arts Foundation, and awards from the Arts Council of England, the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation and Channel4.
