Graham Nicholls

Graham Nicholls

Graham Nicholls (born July 301975) is a British installation artist, activist, and speaker. He is known for his concept of immersive art, which seeks to produce a total sensory experience for the public. He was one of the first artists to explore the possibility of using the Internet for live video streaming and more recently he was at the forefront of artistic experiments with virtual reality. He is also known for drawing upon psychology, Neuro-linguistic programming, as well as spiritual and metaphysical ideas in his interactive works. This can be seen to add a new level to how installation art is experienced. Since the early 90’s he has undertaken personal experimentation into sensory deprivation, hypnosis, and psi abilities, which has formed the basis of much of his present work. Nicholls has also created work that actually hypnotises the participants into having a physical encounter with the installation. This created deeply personal and intimate events for the participants; something quite rare in the world of conventional installation art.

He had his first solo show in New York City in 1999 and in 2004 collaborated on an interactive virtual reality installation at London's Science Museum. His video art draws upon filmic photographic processes and an architectural awareness of space. It also draws extensively on his life and experiences of London and the relationships he sees in the city’s people and places.

His interest in altered states of consciousness, trance and human potential lead him to set up an organisation called the Shahmai Network in 2004 to explore these areas. He is also currently finalising a book which explores his personal spirituality and the hundreds of Out of Body Experiences he purports to have experienced since childhood.

He is also a vegan and a supporter of animal rights.
