New media artist Jennifer Steinkamp meticulously creates digital works of trees, vines, and other foliage that, once projected onto exterior spaces, complicates the divide between indoor and outdoor, architecture and nature. For the ongoing series Judy Crook, Steinkamp animates trees growing and shifting with the seasons, immersing the viewer within an organic life cycle. The series is named after Judy Crook, Steinkamp’s professor of color theory at the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, and each tree is dedicated to a different art teacher. For this work, a vibrant apple tree swirls around while it grows and sheds its fruit and leaves. Based in LA, Steinkamp’s environments have been exhibited at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center; Portland Art Museum; Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; McNay Art Museum, San Antonio; Museum of Fine Arts Houston; Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis; the Joslyn Art Museum, Omaha; and Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga, among others.
