Italian artist Grazia Toderi (b. 1963) likens her video projections to frescoes of light. Although inspired in part by Giotto and other early 14th-century painters, she draws more heavily on contemporary experience, from distant views of cities glowing at night to the zero-gravity ballets of the U.S. space programs. Manipulating her imagery with computer animation, Toderi combines satellite and military footage with her own films and photographs in an effort to visualize the infinite.
