COMMON AREAS: PERSPECTIVES
Montreal-based Sabrina Ratté works with diverse aspects of video. She uses electricity as a raw material and sculpts, transforms, and alters it digitally into luminous and vibrating architectures. Technology allows the viewer to step into the art, explore, and often become a part of the environment itself.
Medium: Audio Video
Location: San Francisco
Common Areas: Perspectives is inspired by the design of lobbies and corporate architecture. The artist places 3D environments side by side to suggest multiple ideas of the same space. Vibrating lights and electrons give life to rigid interiors. Black lines scan the image to reveal new dimensionalities, emphasizing a tension between the screen’s surface and the depth of the space depicted.
Ratté worked with longtime collaborator Roger Tellier-Craig on the soundscape of this piece.
