The Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) presents The Death of the Moth, an exhibition that features recent, animated installations by Los Angeles-based artist Jennifer Steinkamp. The exhibition shares its title with the 1942 short essay by Virginia Woolf, which was published posthumously and displays her signature stream-of-consciousness style in a vignette documenting a moth's final moments. Steinkamp (b. 1958, Denver, Colorado) is an insightful and incisive new media artist known for her time-based video projections of vividly colored trees, flowers, and fabric, which twist and vibrate as though propelled by an unseen force. Her installations explore the definitions of architectural space, motion, and perception with technological precision, while providing an immersive, contemplative experience for the viewer.
