Natalie McKeever is a digital media artist who uses video, animation, physical computing, and programming in her work. She received her MFA in Digital Arts + New Media from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and BFA in Visual Arts from Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of the Arts.
Natalie has exhibited video and installations internationally since 2007. Highlights have included The Jersey City Museum, Athens Video Art Festival, and the Women in Magmart Video Festival. Her research and writing has been published in NMEDIAC The Journal for New Media and Culture, the SciArt in America Blog, and presented at The Quantified Self Annual Conference.
Since recently moving to Sacramento, CA, she has shown her work locally as part of ArtStreet, Beacon: Sacramento, Elevate Arden Fair, Audio Muse at the Crocker Art Museum, and Behind the Barre at the Crest Theater. Her work was highlighted in a feature article in the Sept. 2017 issue of Sacramento Magazine. In 2018 Natalie was nominated as Emerging Artist of the Year by the Sacramento Region Arts and Business Council.
Her art and research has progressed from a focus on the introspective world and the power of mental perception, to a study of the self as it is influenced by the body, and intertwined with other species and its environment. She creates meditative, hypnotic imagery and environments with a twinge of the terror sublime.
