Joseph Farbrook grew up in New York City and Santa Fe, living with his father, a concrete poet and his mother, a painter. His artwork has taken the form of electronic installations, interactive video, augmented and virtual reality narratives, live performances, and interactive screen projections. Within his work, he explores the evolution and consequences of cultural illusions and mediated perception. He has invented customized media platforms that mix physical and virtual art making practices.
Farbrook exhibits his work regularly in galleries and museums worldwide, including SIGGRAPH, International Symposium for Electronic Arts, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Watermans Gallery in London, Galerie Vaclava Spaly in Prague, and numerous solo and group exhibitions in NYC, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle and other cities. Joseph Farbrook is an Associate Professor of art at the University of Arizona.
