Digital Intermedia, Public Space Arts, Experimental Video/Animation (100% Art)
Professor Beckman’s practice involves working primarily with digital media in public spaces and in experimental video-animations. Her projects, thematically at the nexus of consciousness + social conditions, meta-physics + science; highlight perception, public display, stage/screen space, the built and imagined environment, and affect. Beckman’s commissioned and un-commissioned public art projects are often situated in commercial and unusual environments. Her video-animation work is frequently created for and exhibited on public screens, such as public transit, billboards, and recently at gas stations. A short list of her exhibitions, public projects and notable screenings include those in Turkey, Switzerland, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, India, Berlin, Pittsburgh, Macau, San Francisco, Palestine, Louisiana, and Virginia.
