Claudia Hart emerged as part of a generation of 90s intermedia artists examining issues of identity and representation.  Since the late 90s, when she began working with 3D animation, Hart embraced these same concepts but now focusing on the impact of computing and simulations technologies.  She was an early adopter of virtual imaging, using 3D animation to make media installations and projections, and later as they were invented, other forms of VR, AR, and objects produced by computer-driven production machines. At the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she is a Professor, she developed a pedagogic program based on her practice – Experimental 3D  – the first dedicated solely to teaching simulation technologies in an art-school context.

Hart’s works are widely exhibited and collected by galleries and museums, including the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Metropolitan Museum. Her work has been shown at the New Museum, produced at the Eyebeam Center for Art + Technology, where she was an honorary fellow in 2013-14, at Pioneer Works, NY, where she was a technology resident in 2018, and at the Center for New Music and Audio Technology, UC California, Berkeley where she is currently a Fellow.

She lives in New York, is represented in the US by bitforms gallery, and is married to the media artist Kurt Hentschlager.

Second Sight: An Exhibition Of New Approaches To Video (March 7th to March 9th, 2014)

Eyebeam In Collaboration with Moving Image Art Fair

Held on March 7-9, 2014, at Eyebeam. The exhibition featured an Augmented Reality performance, “The Alices” by Claudia Hart, Eyebeam Alum.

In addition, participating artists presenting their new work included Julia ChristensenKatie TornAnton MariniWyatt NiehausElisa Kreisinger, and Jae Minard. These works provided a glimpse into what the future holds for the moving image through immersive pieces, installation, video, and performance, from Eyebeam’s cutting-edge perspective.

Eyebeam models a new approach to artist-led creation for the public good; we are a non-profit that provides significant professional support and money to exceptional artists for the realization of important ideas that wouldn’t exist otherwise. Nobody else is doing this.
