Best known for immersive video projections that use digitally animated natural and abstract forms to investigate themes such as the passage of time and organic movement, Jennifer Steinkamp (b. 1958) is one of today’s most innovative artists. Featuring extensive installation photography, this catalogue includes works from across the artist’s celebrated career and a new site-specific work created for the Clark’s presentation. Moreover, it provides a unique opportunity to see how Steinkamp’s meditative interpretations of nature interact with galleries designed by Tadao Ando specifically to engage the surrounding woodland setting. With an essay by Lisa Saltzman that isolates structuring concerns in Steinkamp’s groundbreaking work, this book sheds new light on one of the most important pioneers in the field of video and new media.

Lisa Saltzman is the Starr Director of the Research and Academic Program at the Clark Art Institute.
