Artist
Jennifer Steinkamp

Jennifer Steinkamp is an American installation artist who works with video and new media in order to explore ideas about architectural space, motion, and perception. Since 2003 she has increasingly incorporated nature-based imagery into her work — gnarled trees that twist, turn, and change seasons; rooms filled with undulating strands of flowers. In doing so she has brought digital art into the mainstream of contemporary art. Steinkamp has been featured in numerous exhibitions and her work is in the permanent public collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the San Jose Museum of Art, the Experience Music Project (Seattle), the Denver Art Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (León, Spain), CAC Museum of Malaga (Spain), Autostadt Collection (Wolfsburg, Germany), İstanbul Modern (Turkey), and the Towada Center (Japan).
