Jakob Kudsk Steensen

    Jakob Kudsk Steensen (b. 1987) is a Danish artist based in New York. He is concerned with how imagination, technology and ecology intertwine. To make his work, Steensen ventures on intense photographic excursions and then converts the collected material into digital worlds by the use of 3D scanners, photogrammetry, satellite data and computer game software. Inspired by ecology-oriented science fiction and conversations with biologists and ethnographers, his projects are ultimately virtual simulations populated by mythical beings existing in radical ecological scenarios.

    Jakob Kudsk has recently exhibited internationally at the 5th Trondheim Biennale for Art and Technology, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Serpentine Galleries Marathon, Jepson Center for the Arts, Time Square Midnight Moment, MAXXI Rome, FRIEZE London, Podium, and Ok Corral. His work has been featured in MOUSSE Magazine, artnet News, The Art Newspaper, Hyperallergic, Politiken, Information, VICE, and the New York Times, among other publications.

    He is currently a finalist for the Future Generation Art Prize 2019, and he has received awards from the Danish Arts Foundation, The Augustinus Foundation, and the Lumen Arts Prize. In 2018, Steensen's work as an art director won him a Telly award, a Webby Award, a Lumiere Award, and a Games for Change Award. He has been the Artist-in-Residence at Harvestworks, Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, AADK, Centra Negra, MASS MoCA, BRIC, and Mana Contemporary. Steensen is an alumni of NEW INC, a technology and culture incubator by The NEW MUSEUM, in NYC.
