About the artist
Jakob Kudsk Steensen is a Danish artist and art director based in New York City. He is concerned with how imagination, technology and ecology intertwine. In a practice that emphasizes field work and collaboration, Kudsk Steensen develops VR and video installations that invite viewers into new ecological realities. He collaborates with NGOs, researchers, residencies, and artists across disciplines, and ventures on intense excursions where he collects organic material to convert into digital worlds through a variety of digital processes. Inspired by ecology-oriented science fiction and conversations with biologists and ethnographers, his projects are ultimately virtual simulations inhabited by mythical beings existing in radical ecological scenarios.
