Christine Sciulli, Intercepting Planes T, 2022. Site specific installation. 20’x20’x 15’. 3 channel HD video projection onto mason’s string. Photos by Tycho Burwell.
My ongoing series Intercepting Planes utilizes digitally created single-pixel animated lines of white light in collision with a handcrafted site-specific network of mason’s string. When these virtual lines of light are cast into physical space by projection, they become rotating planes. Where planes of light are intercepted by straight lines of string, points of light are caught in space. These roving points of light seem imbued with autonomy but are bound by the laws of physics to move in lock-step with the invisible planes of light in which they are inextricably bound.
Christine Sciulli is an installation artist who melds projected light and geometry. Her immersive installations have shown widely including American Academy of Arts and Letters 2014 Invitational, Guild Hall Museum, Parrish Art Museum, and Cologne’s MAKK. Sciulli’s work will be part of the ZFIL Center for International Light Art’s Fall 2022 HYPERsculptures show. Her work has been commissioned by the 1st Global Citizen Festival and Nova Scotia’s Dalhousie Art Gallery with a Canada Council grant.
