Project History

Landmarks commissioned a video installation by artist Jennifer Steinkamp for the renovated Welch Hall in the College of Natural Sciences. Inspired by the evolutionary concept of symbiosis, the site-specific animation enhances the architectural setting by blurring the boundary between real and illusionistic space.

Funding for Eon was provided by the capital improvement project for the College of Natural Sciences. Landmarks gives special thanks to the following:
