Anne Vieux’s swirling imagery, created by scanning light-refracting holographic paper and manipulating it by hand as it prints through a flatbed printer, produces colorfully vivid patterns rooted in both the virtual and physical worlds. Dancing across large panes of glass, the rhythmic swirls of Vieux’s installation /light_wave leads the viewer on an animated journey down the exterior windows of 15 MetroTech Center. Embedded in this path is her fascination with computer coding and physical traces of digital information. Just as her creative methods join the digital and corporeal realms, our own relationship to technology becomes evermore portable and vital to our daily tasks. Through the simple act of walking by 15 MetroTech Center’s windows, Vieux presents us with a space to contemplate technology’s physical nature and its place in our lives.
