OTHER TUMBLRS · a visual notebook by Julia Rosa Clark.
Jennifer Steinkamp,Digital rendering of Madame Curie, 2010
About the installation, from here:
"…this new commission is inspired by Steinkamp’s recent research into  atomic energy, atomic explosions, and the effects of these forces on  nature. Marie Curie was the recipient of two Nobel Prizes for creating  the theory of radioactivity, and discovering radium and polonium. She  was also an avid gardener and lover of flowers. An enveloping panoramic  work reminiscent of Steinkamp’s 2004 video projection The Wreck of the Dumaru, the new piece will activate a field of moving flowers and flowering trees in line with the imagery of Steinkamp’s 2010 work Orbit Without Seasons.  Flowers rendered realistically for this new work include marsh  marigolds, may flower, chestnut blooms, and hop plants, among many  others drawn from a list of over 40 plants mentioned in Marie Curie’s  biography written by her daughter, Eve Curie. The seven-channel  projection will engage the architecture of the space and will require  seven synchronized projections onto three walls of the 4,500-square-foot  gallery.”
