Jennifer Steinkamp
x-Ray Eyes

Project Area: CBD/South Park
Project: Staples Center
Project Location: 1111 S. Figueroa Street
Project Type: Developer


"x-Ray Eyes" is a rear screen LCD projected animation loop that fills the curved window detail suspended off the super truss of the building near the 11th St. entrance.  Signaling nighttime activity at the Center, the colorful and vibrant imagery fills the window. The artist's three abstract animation loops are the first use of computer generated moving light imagery for a building in Southern California.
