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 into the tactile. To that end, her artistic practice combines traditional textile-making and printmaking techniques with digital imagery and materials.

She mostly works with a 3D modeling software used for prototyping and manufacturing in industries like engineering, architecture, and design. The grids of this program become Anne-Marie’s blank canvas; on them she renders shapes and objects in digital space, then turns them into minimal silkscreened prints or weaving patterns. Through these processes, Anne-Marie pulls away the curtain and shows viewers how technologically-constructed their world really is.

She is an alumni from the Interactive Telecommunications Program 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 residence program at the Textile Arts Center in Brooklyn. She received the 2016 Artist Legacy Grant by the Women’s Studio Workshop. Her creative practice is supported by the Canadian and Quebec Councils for the Arts. She is currently a digital fabrication mentor and researcher at the School of Visual Arts.
