Jennifer Steinkamp employs computer animation and new media to create projection installations in order to explore ideas about architectural space, motion, and phenomenological perception. Her digitally animated works make use of the interplay between actual space and illusionistic space, thus creating environments in which the roles of the viewing subjects and the art objects become blurred.
Jennifer Steinkamp completed her BFA and MFA from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California in 1989 and 1991 respectively, and also received an honorary PhD in 2011. Steinkamp has exhibited widely at prominent institutions and biennials worldwide, and her work can be found in numerous public and private collections, including The Chrysler Museum of Art, Virginia; Centro de Arte Contemporaneo de Malaga, Spain; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, California; Istanbul Museum, Turkey; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, California; Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Minnesota; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Florida; and Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas.
