Jennifer Steinkamp: Blind Eye

On view through October 8
Los Angeles-based media and installation artist Jennifer Steinkamp’s cutting-edge art engages with one of the oldest themes in art history—nature. By deconstructing and re-engineering computer code, the artist utilizes the abstract language of technology to create vibrant images rooted in the natural world. The exhibition, Jennifer Steinkamp: Blind Eye, consists of six pieces including a new projection, Blind Eye, conceived by the artist to interact with the Clark’s 140-acre setting and the architecture of the Lunder Center at Stone Hill. Click here to read the press release.
