Title: Expanding Circles
Artist: Christine Sciulli
Media: Site specific HD video projection installation (65 seconds)
Location: Great Lawn, Central Park, NY, NY
Dimensions: 300âï¿½ï¿½L x 175âï¿½ï¿½ W x 6âï¿½ï¿½ H
Video artist Christine Sciulli was selected to compose a 65 second light installation to be projected from above onto the audience during the 2nd Annual Global Citizen Festival, which intends to raise awareness and recruit activists to help end extreme global poverty. The concert is Saturday September 28th on the Great Lawn of Central Park, NYC. The headliners include Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon and John Mayer. Tickets are free to those who pledge social action to end global poverty through the Global Poverty Projectâï¿½ï¿½s website ((globalpovertyproject.com)
Concept: The power of One. Many Ones. Inspiration is Contagious. It begins with you. Be part of the movement to end extreme poverty.
Visual Concept: Rippling influence from a single voice (circle) expands outward until the audience is networked through overlapping, engaged circles which then reach out into a global call to action to help end extreme poverty.
Shot by the extraordinary video operator from a scissor lift where the projectors were located, this video shows a segment of Expanding Circles projected onto 2500 people in the 60,000 person audience. Projection mapping by Pablo Molina. We used (12) 25K Chrystie projectors with 2-2.8 lenses from atop 4 scissor lifts and D3 mapping software to cover a 300' x 125' area of NYC's Central Park Great Lawn.

A site specific projection by Christine Sciulli
Christine Sciulli has assembled images and stories from the Kattegat coast developed through talking with the local families who have been actively involved in fishing in the village for generations. Images gathered by the community were rephotographed by Sciulli and mixed with photos taken by her around the Ishus to propel a projection work that speaks to the past, present and future of the seaside town of Fjellerup through the virtual sublimation of walls of Thomsens Ishus.
A one night workshop was held for local tweens to experiment with drawing with light onto the projections.
Thomsens Ishus, site specific projection by Christine Sciulli is part of Fjellerup i Bund og Grund, an art project by Anna Lise Jensen with site-specific art projects in Fjellerup, supported by Norddjurs and made in collaboration with the townspeople and artists Norbert Francis Attard, Julia Whitney Barnes, Monica Carrier, Jo Q . Nelson and Christine Sciulli.

THE EXPANSIVE FIELD: Artist Residency at South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) in Bridgehampton, NY.
THE EXPANSIVE FIELD: Artist Residency at South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) in Bridgehampton, NY. The Expansive Field Project included large scale projection installations, invited guest artist-performers, workshops, and educational outreach.
Three performers were invited to interact with my installations during special performances: Composer-vocalist Cecilie Hafstad Richards (20 April 2013 Opening Event), Visual/Movement artist Jaanika Peerna, and Philosopher-composer-author David Rothenberg (25 May 2013 Closing Event).
Throughout the residency, I held several interactive workshops where the public was invited to manipulate materials within projections of light, as well as transforming sound into light projections onto various materials.
Several school groups made studio visits, including a group of 8,9,10th grade geometry students who brought their own projects to share alongside my studio work with a class of 3rd graders. To satisfy my interest in off-site educational outreach for this residency, I worked with the 7th class at the Ross School to develop individual projection installations which resulted in a show in their school gallery.

Christine Sciulli's latest video Projection Installation TANGLE, part of her planeSPACE series, overruns Causey Contemporary, creating meandering pathways in which to immerse viewers in fractured planes of light. Âï¿½ItÂï¿½s 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 Âï¿½spatialisationÂï¿½ - she plays with how we perceive the world around us in a way that leaves you with a kind of eerie sense of timelessness.Âï¿½ Paul Miller aka DJ Spooky from his essay Âï¿½Christine Sciulli: An Artist of the Floating World, planeSPACE and Practical GeometryÂï¿½

planeSPACE, installation in the series Intercepting Planes.
Points of light map the intersections of light planes and network pathways.The networks used in this body of work have utilized various materials. In earlier installations, a random, taut, linear network of string was used to define pathways and synapses in gallery spaces. Operating on a much larger scale, Intercepting Planes X mapped planes of light onto a network of tree canopies high above Duane Park.
In this current installation, a mishmash of vines, roots, and bramble forms a dense, organic network. Points of light variously slink, careen and collide along twisted pathways - the result of a projected line mapped onto the tangled network of planeSPACE.
