Jo Fairfax will create an installation of lasers and light, linking three of the county’s water towers in a giant overland triangle.
Jo was brought up in a thatched cottage in the middle of rural Berkshire within an artistic family of, painters, dancers, writers and poets all ploughing their own creative furrow – not a proper job in sight. It is perhaps not surprising that Jo and brother Michael should occupy some space in the artworld.
Definitions and categories of activity seem unnecessary to Jo. Science, art, geography, architecture etc etc, don’t benefit from being classified as such and explains why Leonardo da Vinci is his all time hero. Good design is good design. Jo believes everything can benefit from the attention of creative minds, whether it’s a gateway sculpture or a defibrillator.
Jo’s work to date includes sculpture, architectural lighting, sculptural lighting, holograms, urban design, seat design, virtual reality, films, cartoons and writing. ‘I love the current technological developments and I love design with spirit. I hope that you enjoy my work.’
