The Mimic series is inspired by industrial architecture and nature, with the first work in the series being developed during a graduate residency at Norwich shoe factory for the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Art, Norwich. New entries were then created during Henry’s time on alt.barbican, an incubator for innovative tech artists. Artworks in the Mimic series have been shown globally in Montreal, Seoul, London (Barbican), Taipei, Yokohama and Montemor-o-Velho.
