Jennifer SteinKamp - Loop

"Recent explorations employing digital media and installation represent a fulfillment of the tradition while suggesting new directions for visual music. Using multiple video projections and amplified sound, Jennifer Steinkamp (b. 1958) constructed a space where the viewer is immersed in an environment of lights, color, form, and movement synchronized to a sound composition by Bryan Brown. In her work SWELL (1995), three projectors present digital animations of glowing colored starburst forms, creating the impression of an infinite space in which light spirals out towards the viewer and spins back into the void."
