Jim Campbell

Jim Campbell (Chicago, 1956) graduated in Electronic Engineering and Mathematics for the Massachussetts's Institute of Technology (MIT), is a pioneering artist in the digital transformation of information in works of artistic nature that cross with contemporary art, science and technology.

With a wide career as filmmaker, he will fuse his scientific knowledge and his artistic baggage creating, since 1988, recreational facilities which he terms "custom electronics" that he designs for the unique purpose of each installation.

Nowadays he lives and is employed at San Francisco, California and his work figures in the collections of Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art and The Museum of Modern Art of New York, Smithsonian of Washington D.C, San Francisco Museum of Modern art, Cincinnati Art Museum and Berkely Art Museum, between other cultural institutions.

In the fall of 2010, Campbell's work, "Scattered Light" was installed in the Madison Square Park Conservancy in Manhattan making it the largest and most extensive public art piece of his to date. Hundreds of hovering tiny lights made up a large-scale, three-dimensional public installation.
