The three portals to the worlds of the Hidden Sun by the artist John Harris.

I have been working  for nearly 40 years in the field of what is generally understood as science-fiction. I'm hesitant to use that expression, because it limits hugely the scope of what's going on here. Although much of this does seem to be squarely in the genre, my preoccupations have always been with the underlying feelings of vastness and ascendancy that often accompany such imagery. I prefer to use the term Imaginative Realism.


The film below is an overview of that work, its origins and direction and some of the thinking that lies behind it.
