Jennifer Steinkamp and Jimmy Johnson

Jennifer Steinkamp manipulates light to “dematerialize architecture.” Using a computer to project images onto existing forms, Steinkamp not only transforms architecture but also creates an entirely new structure. Often, these pieces work in conjunction with their viewers, who, as they walk around an installation, trigger motion sensors. These sensors, engineered by Steinkamp, activate changes in color or movement in the image.

Steinkamp received her BFA and her MFA from the Art Center College of Design. Her numerous solo exhibitions include The Greengrassi Gallery in London (1999), The Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas (2000), and ACME in Los Angeles (2000). She has received several awards including three National Endowment for the Arts grants, two Rockefeller Foundation grants, and a CalArts Alpert Award in the Arts.

Jimmy Johnson is a composer, producer, sound designer, and programmer. He has served as a consultant to Warner Brothers, MTV, NBC, and the J.Paul Getty Center. Johnson was a faculty member at the Art Center College of Design from 1993 to 1997. He lives and works in Hollywood.

Jennifer Steinkamp and Jimmy Johnson are participating artists in SITE Santa Fe’s Fourth International Biennial, Beau Monde: Toward a Redeemed Cosmopolitanism. Their collaborative work, sin(time) (2001) is a DVD projection installation with sound situated at the entrance to the exhibition.

SITE Santa Fe’s Art & Culture series is partially supported by The Brown Foundation, Inc., Houston, Lannan Foundation, Madelin Coit and Alan Levin, Bobbie Foshay-Miller and Chuck Miller, and Marlene Nathan Meyerson.
