Outside of her work at Creative Reuse, Sciulli works primarily with reclaimed paper and paper-based materials, like corrugated cardboard and pieces of mail. She used similar materials in her works at Creative Reuse, including music sheets and record sleeves.
"I really like materials that have a history already embedded in them," says Sciulli. "Even when I choose the paper that I use for my pieces, it's always coming from a pre-existing object, so if I use music books or something like that ... [it] already had a former life or history and being able to deconstruct those and make something new out of them."
Sciulli's works will be on view at Creative Reuse through Oct. 24. She will be leading a not-yet-announced workshop in September related to her residency works.
