Jennifer Steinkamp "Moth" @ ACME, LAJuxtapoz // Friday, 02 Mar 2012
Jennifer Steinkamp's captivating installations first became known to us after seeing her piece “Madame Curie" at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. The installation incorporated three-dimensional projections that engulfed the entire space in the museum, expanding the walls and into a hypnotizing deep space of both digital and natural elements. Organic mass composed of flowers, leaves and other verdurous debris floated continuously about the entire room which upon closer inspection, is clearly pixelated and digitized. This tension between the natural and the digital representation is something that permeates our lives. Upon reading a review from Daily Serving, the relevance of digital representation that consumes our lives is obvious to Steinkamp's work.
