Works in New York, New York United States of America

“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 from his essay “Christine Sciulli: An Artist of the Floating World, planeSPACE and Practical Geometry”

Christine Sciulli is a New York based projection-installation artist. Her current body of work, planeSPACE, has developed through solo shows and projects at AC Institute, Frederieke Taylor Gallery and Chi Contemporary, as well as group shows at Smithsonian affiliate Annmarie Garden and the Islip Art Museum where Janet Goleas described her installation of Intercepting Planes B 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 Duane Park (New York). She is video artist for Phantom Limb’s 69°S (2011 at Brooklyn Academy of Music.) and developed video for the project through Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center Residency, and a Mass MoCA residency. Sciulli was nominated for the American Academy of Arts and Letters 2010 Invitational Exhibition submission.

Her collaborations with composers have been shown widely at European and American festivals. In addition to the upcoming 69°S, Sciulli has collaborated with Mabou Mines, who featured her projection installation for their waterfront production of, “Song for New York: What Women Do While Men Sit Knitting” by Ruth Maleczech, developed during a Sundance Institute Theatre Lab Residency at White Oak, Florida.

Her 2005 solo show at Causey Contemporary (formerly Chi Contemporary), COVER, was a Village Voice Shortlist Choice: "projections...imbued with fresh, though enigmatic, meaning through intelligently deployed technology (RC BAKER)." Christine Sciulli holds an Architectural Engineering degree from Penn State University, and a BFA and MFA from Hunter College. Sciulli’s work is part of the New Museum’s Rhizome ArtBase ( She is represented by Causey Contemporary.

Christine Sciulli Solo Show

Fri Jan 11, 2008 00:00 - Fri Jan 04, 2008

Christine Sciulli, Solo Show "Fugue State
Chi Contemporary Fine Art, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
293 Grand Street, Brooklyn, 718 218 8939
Opening Friday January 11, 2008.
Closes February 3, 2008.

My current body of work attempts to create a dialogue between a projection and a transformation of that projection.

A Fugue State is a psychological term for an involuntary disassociation from one's own identity through the loss of personal memory. Those in a Disassociative Fugue experience sudden amnesia of their identity and personal history but are otherwise functional.

In Fugue State, a projected line of light becomes unravelled and fluidly recast as it is intercepted by physical lines and transparent surfaces. The straight line is simultaneously presented as well as sinuously redrawn into hovering languid curves and darting points of light.
