This is a video of the south wall of the Jennifer Steinkamp video animation work titled MADAME CURIE. The work was projected on every wall of the large, and empty, Farrell Gallery at the Museum of Contemporary Art in downtown San Diego. Here is an excerpt from http://www.mcasd.org/exhibitions/625/: MCASD has commissioned Jennifer Steinkamp to create a new work for MCASD Downtown's Joan and Irwin Jacobs Building. Entitled Madame Curie, 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.
