The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art has launched an immersive digital experience that animates and illuminates the significance of ‘tow row’ 2016, the bronze fishing net sculpture by leading Queensland artist Judy Watson on permanent display at the entrance to GOMA.
Available on personal devices, the experience explores the history and cultural significance of the traditional fishing nets, used by Queensland’s First Nations people for millennia, that inspired the now iconic sculpture.
The digital reality experience can be accessed onsite at GOMA, or immerse yourself online now. For the best sound quality, use your earphones and let your mind drift along with the river, as the ‘tow row’ sculpture reveals its story.
This dynamic experience has been created by QAGOMA in collaboration with the artist and Queensland creative and technology agency ROMEO.
