Statement

"It's not every day that you see an artist like Christine Sciulli. Her work consists of intersections of the geometry and an intuitive sense of how to use everyday materials to give a sense of “spatialisation” – she plays with how we perceive the world around us in a way that leaves you with a kind of eerie sense of timelessness."(Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky)

Christine Sciulli is a visual artist whose primary medium is projected light. In addition to her selection for the American Academy of Arts and Letters 2014 Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts, Sciulli's installations have been shown in the Parrish Art Museum, South Fork Museum of Natural History, Frederieke Taylor Gallery, Edward Hopper House Art Center and Smithsonian Affiliate Annmarie Gardens and the Islip Art Museum where Janet Goleas described her installation to be “a quiet riot of controlled chaos.”

She was the recipient of a Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Grant to produce a roving outdoor video installation, Intercepting Planes X in Tribeca’s Duane Park (pictured at top) and commissioned by the Global Poverty Project to create Expanding Circles, projected onto 2,500 people, for the 2013 Global Citizen Festival. Sciulli’s theatrical credits include light-video artist for the Mabou Mines waterfront production of, “Song for New York: What Women Do While Men Sit Knitting”, by Ruth Maleczech and participated in their Sundance Institute Theatre Lab Residency at White Oak. She has worked with Phantom Limb in residence at Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center and Mass MoCA. She was a finalist for Ridge Flats, a 2013 Philadelphia Percent for Art commission.

Christine Sciulli holds an Architectural Engineering degree from Penn State University, graduating as a Besal Scholar, as well as BFA and MFA degrees in Combined Media from Hunter College, where she was awarded the Esther Fish Perry Award, BFA merit award, and the Leutz/Reidel Travel Grant. Sciulli’s work is part of the New Museum’s Rhizome ArtBase (Rhizome.org). Further information can be found at christinesciulli.net.
