Artist and designer

Dominic Wilcox Studio

Dominic Wilcox works between the worlds of art, design, craft and technology to create innovative and thought provoking objects.

Recent work includes the design of the world's first pair of shoes with inbuilt GPS to guide the wearer home, a Binaudios device to listen to the sounds of a city, a race against a 3D Printer at the V&A and a stained glass driverless car of the future.

In 2014 he published his book of unusual invention drawings 'Variations on Normal', described by Thomas Heatherwick as "serious challenges to the real world to keep looking at itself with innocent eyes, wondering what else is possible."

In 2009 he started a Webby Award-nominated blog called 'Variations on Normal' where he shows his sketchbook inventions and observations. He has received commissions from a diverse range of organisations such as Paul Smith, Selfridges, The V&A museum and BMW Mini.
