Joseph Farbrook

Joseph Farbrook came to WPI in 2006, attracted by the project-based learning environment and the true multidisciplinary nature of the IMGD program. For many years he has worked with video game technology as a medium for fine art and has continued this work in the form of virtual art installations, video sculpture, CG imagery, and Internet and transmission-based art. Professor Farbrook is interested in alternative and cutting-edge uses for video game technology and the philosophical implications of computer-aided experiences.

Professor Farbrook exhibits his work regularly in galleries and museums worldwide, including SIGGRAPH, The Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver, Axiom Gallery Boston, and Waterman’s Gallery London (2012). He especially enjoys teaching at WPI because of the exciting and innovative approaches that students from many different disciplines take when tackling an artistic problem or concept.
