Abstract:
The Museum’s most recent acquisition is Jennifer Steinkamp’s video installation titled Mike Kelley. The image of Steinkamp’s dancing tree is one of the first works visitors see when entering the West Building and has quickly become one of the most popular and captivating works of art at the Museum. The artist uses light, color, and movement to create an image inspired by the natural world, but created using 3-D computer animation software. Projected on a wall, the tree cycles through the four seasons in eight minutes and invites viewers to immerse themselves in the work by taking the time to watch it change.
