Item description for Jennifer Steinkamp by Joanne Northrup, Dave Hickey & Dan Cameron...

Starry Eyes: The Art of Jennifer Steinkamp JoAnne Northrup, Dave Hickey, Dan Cameron

This monograph celebrates the pioneering work of Jennifer Steinkamp, an artist for the digital age.

Steinkamp's work consists largely of installations, abstract and figurative projections that blur the lines between the virtual and the concrete. Trained in animation and computer graphics, Steinkamp's art exists only in code, her computer serving as the paint, the palette and the brush. The book includes essays tracing Steinkamp's career and providing an introduction to her unique methods. Other topics discussed in the book are Steinkamp's work in the context of the burgeoning field of animation and her work in relation to the paintings of Monet and Pollock, showing how her work takes impressionist and expressionist art to the next, inevitable, step.

JoAnne Northrup is a Senior Curator of the San Jose Museum of Art.

Dave Hickey is an award-winning art critic.

Dan Cameron is a curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jennifer Steinkamp?

The Cutting Edge of Visual Art Today  Feb 15, 2007
As far as I know, this is the only book so far on Steinkamp's impressive work. She creates mostly abstract video animations (using a program appropriately called Maya) and then projects them on a large scale, often creating complete room-size environments in this way. Their actual experience is of immersing oneself in a strange space or "landscape" of constantly moving, weaving colors, often with specially comnposed music in a contemporary vein -- very psychedelic, but also informed by color theory and the history of art and sometimes poltics. And the viewers' shadows become part of the work. Of course, a book can't quite capture the experience itself, but this will help a lot. Dave Hickey's essay is the boldest and best of the three essays included, all of them well informed and illuminating. This may well be the future of visual art, so get with it! You can also go to her website and view quicktime movies of some of her works and projective installations (including the huge outdoor one in Las Vegas). I'm not as fond of some of her recent work using more realistic plant and other forms, but even those are interesting.
