Julia Sinelnikova builds holographic worlds. The Brooklyn-based artist pairs reams of hand-cut holographic material with projections, lights, and music to create immersive installations that tickle the senses. She's previously collaborated with electronic artists including Aurora Halal and Machinedrum. Now, with a new solo show currently on display at Industry City Gallery, she's sharing a video that provides a glimpse into her shimmering practice. Shot and edited by Errol Basdeo and beguilingly soundtracked by Berlin-via-Manchester producer Einerlei, it features footage from a major exhibit from last summer.
"[It] was created while on residency in abandoned military quarters on Governor's Island, as part of the Center for Holographic Arts's summer program," Sinelnikova told The FADER. "The materials are 100% hand-fabricated and hand-cut with patterns of ancient trees on the premises, abstracted through fractals. The movement of the light is controlled entirely by the movement of my body in a tiny video projected onto the central sculpture, which is made of a special light-reactive film."
