CIA presents an artist's talk by Jim Campbell, an engineer-turned-artist whose work currently lights up Madison Square Park in New York City.
Come to The Cleveland Institute of Art on Tuesday, November 16 at 7pm to hear a free public presentation by Jim Campbell, the well-known light artist who experiments with pixelated images to make art that challenges the human eye and brain.
A former Silicon Valley engineer turned visual artist, Campbell (originally from Chicago and based in San Francisco) has pioneered a very sophisticated level of LED light and video manipulations that he transforms into art installations. On November 16 he will appear in person in CIA's Aitken Auditorium for an exclusive presentation and lecture that is hosted by the Integrated Media departments at CIA, including digital arts, animation, video, game design, photography, illustration, and biomedical art.
The Wall Street Journal calls Campbell’s art a “masterwork of technical ingenuity and beauty,” and the San Francisco Gate raves that “climatic” is the best word to describe the experience of viewing one of his interactive video installations.
Prior to his talk, Campbell's new installation of nearly 2,000 LED lights will open on October 21 at Madison Square Park in New York City. W magazine this month says the public art installation will “glow like fireflies on a warm summer night.”
Internationally known as an artist working at the edge of electronic media, Jim Campbell holds degrees from MIT in both mathematics and electrical engineering. Born in Chicago in 1956 and now living in San Francisco, Campbell explores the inherent qualities of electronic media forgoing the seductive lure of its capacity through digital to produce high resolution imagery. He instead chooses to investigate the limits of perception working with LED lighting and pixelation. He is most interested in the limits of visual information to transform into meaning. His work relates to many disciplines including photography and installation. See his work at jimcampbell.tv.
