At the intersection of art, digital technology and space, this series of exhibitions surveys work in video and film and reflects on how architecture shapes the projection medium in contemporary art.

Loom, a work by Los Angeles-based artist Jennifer Steinkamp, deftly uses projected video and animation to explore issues of architectural space, motion and phenomenological perception. As viewers move through Steinkamp’s installation, their shadows become interlaced with the moving images so that their bodies and actions become incorporated into the artwork itself.
