Jen Lewin is an internationally renowned new media and interactive sculptor based in New York. Over her 20-year career, Lewin has honed her architectural background and a highly technical medium to fabricate large-scale interactive, public sculpture that encourages community interaction and play. At once organic and electronic, Lewin thinks beyond traditional art exhibitions to create an experience that brings vibrancy to public spaces. Lewin’s playful sculptures exist where art, technology, and communities meet, leaving viewers enchanted while encouraging delight through engagement with the work. She creates connected human experiences where participants not only interact and enjoy the playfulness of the sculpture but more importantly, also interact and connect with each other.
Lewin’s technically complex works have been featured at events including the Istanbul Light Festival, Vivid Sydney 2014 and 2018, iLight Marina Bay, Signal Fest, Burning Man, art Biennales in Denver, Colorado and Gwangju, South Korea, and solo exhibitions across the United States and in Mexico, Portugal, and England. Jen Lewin has designed and installed permanent public interactive sculptures worldwide including the Side Walk Harp in Minneapolis, Magical Harp in Palo Alto, Promenade in Denver, Colorado, and Ascent in Coral Springs, Florida. She has worked in collaboration as a dynamic lighting designer for permanent, public installations with Claes Oldenburg in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Lawrence Argent in Vail, Colorado.
