March 10, 2010: Jennifer Steinkamp

Posted on March 10, 2010 by School of Art

Jennifer Steinkamp is an installation artist who works with video and new media in order to explore ideas about architectural space, motion, and perception. Steinkamp uses digital projection to transform architectural space, providing the viewer with a synaesthetic experience, often working in collaboration with musicians Andrew Bucksbarg and Jimmy Johnson to integrate sound into her work. While her career began with brightly colored abstract projections, since 2003 she has increasingly incorporated nature- based imagery into her workÑgnarled trees that twist, turn, and change seasons; rooms filled with undulating strands of flowers. Steinkamp studied at CalArts and ArtCenter in Los Angeles, and has had solo exhibitions at The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami; The Nevada Museum of Art; and the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, among others. A retrospective of her work opened at the San Jose Museum of Contemporary Art in 2006 and traveled to the Kemper Museum and the Albright-Knox Gallery.
