Recent Work

American Wild

National Parks are a living memorial to a uniquely American idea of wilderness. In celebration of the National Parks Centennial, American Wild captures the majesty of the nation’s landscape and brings it to its capital. American Wild generates civic pride by connecting the distinctive architecture of the Washington DC Metro to the National Parks. Video of the National Parks are projection-mapped at full scale. The memorial lasts for 59 days, one day for each park. This timeline of the National Park Service’s 100-year history advocates for their next 100 years.

Halina Steiner, along with collaborators Shelby Doyle, Justine Holzman and Forbes Lipschitz, received Honorable Mention for Marrying the Ephemeral and Iconic for their submission Americal Wild in the Memorials for the Future Competition in cooperation with the Van Alen Institute, National Capital Planning Commission, and National Parks Service.
