Anne-Marie LavigneAlumni, Class of 2014
Anne-Marie explores how technology sculpts our ways of seeing. For her, technology is a perspective and she seeks to make it visible by translating it from the abstract to the tactile. To that end, her artistic practice combines traditional textile-making and printmaking techniques with digital imagery and materials/tools. Her mixing of seemingly opposite technological paradigms allows for unexpected aesthetics to arise, questioning our assumptions on the objects surrounding us. Anne-Marie is an alumni from the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) of NYU Tisch School of Arts where she researched soft circuitry and materials. She was awarded the Ruth Schirson Levin Fellowship for the 2014-2015 artist in residency program at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn. She received the 2016 Artist Legacy Grant by the Women's Studio Workshop. Her creative process is supported by the Canadian and Quebec Councils for the the Arts. She is currently faculty at the Visible Futures Lab of the School of Visual Arts where she teaches and research digital fabrication and she is a Spaceworks Gowanus Grantee.
