Steinkamp is a contemporary artist working in the field of new media art. Fly to Mars is a computer-animated projection of a tree that comes to life with movement as it cycles through the four seasons of the year. From colorful flowering buds in spring to leafless branches in winter, viewers experience the natural cycle of a tree’s foliage. Simultaneously, the tree bows up and down, as though attempting to break free from the earth’s gravity and take flight into the cosmos.
