Jennifer Steinkamp employs video and new media to create immersive and often interactive works of art. In Still-Life 1, she draws upon the story of Dutch and Flemish still life painting, also known as stilleven or nature morte to create a work that cleverly extends the terms of the genre—as Steinkamp's piece is anything but still.
Like other works in her oeuvre, this piece presents familiar natural elements in a moving format that entrances and mesmerizes. In this way, Steinkamp invites viewers to experience a new, twenty-first-century version of the aesthetic sublime.
The Cantor Arts Center is located at the intersection of Museum Way and Lomita Drive in the heart of the arts district on the Stanford campus. The Cantor faces the Bing Concert Hall across Palm Drive, northwest of The Oval and the Main Quad.
