  • Abstract

    Jo Fairfax is a successful sculptor who has an established international reputation for his public artwork and in particular his holography work. He was awarded a Nesta fellowship to advance his aspiration of creating an increasingly emotional response to his artworks through the use of VR technology. A key attraction to Fairfax was the appeal of being immersed within an artwork. Fairfax did not want to make a virtual sculpture but rather an art environment that was the work itself, he referred to it as ‘being inside a 3D moving Pollock or Rothko’ (Fairfax 2007).
